Charlie Weis Leaving Florida For Head Coaching Job at Kansas
Less than one year after arriving at the University of Florida, former Gators offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has left to become the head coach at the University of Kansas. An introductory press conference will welcome Weis to Lawrence, Kansas on Friday.
Weis came to Florida being hailed as an offensive genius, a man who owns four Super Bowl rings as a coach, but Weis's offense struggled at Florida, with the team finishing outside the top 100 in the nation in total offense and 8th out of 12 teams in the SEC.
Gators head coach Will Muschamp says he discussed the move with Weis prior to Weis's leaving, and gave his most high-profile first year hire his blessing.
"I support him 1000 percent," Muschamp told reporters at a Gator Bowl press conference in Jacksonville.
Muschamp will now turn to a job search for Weis's replacement, a task that Muschamp says he won't rush.
"We're the University of Florida, we're gonna be able to go hire an outstanding football coach that's gonna fit what I want within our offense and within our system."
