Charlie Weis The Next Offensive Coordinator of the Florida Gators?
I have had sources tell me that Weis would much prefer to be a head coach in the college game than the NFL.
In college you are treated like a “God” and you have full control of your program. In the NFL you are hired to be fired and a lot of people are in your ear telling you what you should be doing.
I am not surprised of his interest in the Gators offensive coordinator position. Succeed there and he is back on the fast track to a major college head coaching position.
Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis is being targeted by the Florida Gators to become the offensive coordinator under new coach Will Muschamp, two sources confirmed to ESPN.
Weis is expected to take the job, but no firm agreement is in place.
Muschamp contacted the Chiefs this week for permission to talk to Weis, with the full intention of hiring the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator and former Notre Dame coach, sources said. A Florida source said Weis would continue to coach the Chiefs into the AFC playoffs. Another source reiterated that Weis is expected to accept the job
The Gators are trying to move away from the gimmicky Urban Meyer spread offense to a more traditional pro style offense. They have been focusing on current and former NFL coordinators.
I think it is a good fit.
I believe Weis is better as a coordinator than a coach and his work with Kansas City has been excellent. If he takes the job I would expect the Gators to be back in National Championship contention quickly.
