Former Patriots, Chiefs Coordinator Charlie Weis Hired As Jayhawks Head Coach


According to ESPN, Super Bowl-winning former Patriots and Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has been hired as head football coach of the Kansas Jayhawks. Weis was 35-27 as head coach of Notre Dame.

His 2010 Chiefs were 14th in scoring, averaging 22.9 PPG and only committing 14 turnovers . The 2011 Chiefs – with many players sidelined – are 30th in scoring, averaging a mere 13.6 PPG, and they’ve committed 24 turnovers.

Weis was the offensive coordinator for the 6-6 Florida Gators this season, who are playing in the Gator Bowl against Ohio State on January 2nd at 1 PM ET on ESPN2.

Kansas finished their season last in FBS in defense with 43.8 PPG allowed, albeit against a very strong Big 12.

Weis will be introduced Friday at a press conference on the KU campus in Lawrence. It seems doubtful that he’ll be offensive coordinator in the Gator Bowl.

Hit “Like” if you think this could be a good hire.
