Reports are coming in that the Kansas City Chiefs will soon be looking for a new offensive coordinator as Charlie Weis has decided to leave the team. Apparently, Weiss will be joining the University of Florida and head coach Will Muschamp for its O-coordinator position. That’s right. Leaving the NFL…for the same job…in college.
Obviously, there has to be more to the story than Weis just missing the college ranks. The job change will undoubtedly come with a considerable decrease in pay and prestige. However, it also comes with a little less responsibility and likely a lot less pressure. According to NBC Sports, its possible – if not probable – that Weis and Chiefs head coach Todd Haley simply don’t see eye-to-eye. Haley can be a bit of a micro-manager and, even though it’s difficult to argue with the results this season, Weis probably doesn’t much like that kind of oversight at this point in his career. Weis will, of course, be staying on throughout the Chiefs playoff run…however long it may be.
Oddly enough, the rumours are flying that former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels is in the running to replace Weis. Given the recent Haley/McDaniels history and the fact that McDaniels was fined for essentially cheating, this match up seems unlikely. But his skills as a head coach notwithstanding, McDaniels has an excellent offensive mind – especially in regard to the quarterback. And his sacking in Denver might have been just humbling enough to make him a good soldier in Haley’s army.
