Report: Charlie Weis Hired As Florida Offensive Coordinator

Somehow, someway, this has actually happened. According to multiple reports floating around the Internet, Charlie Weis will step down as the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator to take the same position on new Florida head coach Will Muschamp’s staff ahead of the 2011 season. Florida will reportedly officially announce the hiring as early as Monday. The rumor first popped-up yesterday and, apparently, developed at warp speed.

Muschamp was looking for a coordinator to install a pro-style offense in an effort to continue the flood of high profile recruits to Gainesville. In Weis, he gets just that. Weis has extensive experience in the pro ranks, despite a failed stint as head coach at the college level.

Weis has been a journeyman coordinator in the NFL, working his way up the New England Patriots coaching ladder — while detouring to the New York Jets for a brief, fleeting moment — before taking the head coaching job at Notre Dame in 2005. That failed experiment lasted until 2009, when Weis was fired and returned to the NFL ranks. In 2010, he oversaw a successful offense in Kansas City as the Chiefs rolled into the playoffs.
