Charlie Weis Hires Charlie Weis as Wide Receivers Coach

By DJ Byrnes on February 11, 2014 at 12:22p

Ah, Charlie Weis, how I miss you waddling up and down Notre Dame's sidelines while filled with so much swagger and bravado. 

Weis went 34-25 in his five magical seasons in South Bend, and was eventually canned and replaced by another rotund man who also enjoys cussing and screaming at his players on national television.

Weis has since moved onto to the pastures in Lawrence, Kansas. In two years as the Jayhawks frontman, Weis has amassed a 4-20 record. 

Today it was announced Charlie Weis is restructuring his staff, because 4-20 isn't going to cut it, even at Kansas. Wide receivers coach Rob Ianello will move to a new position as Director of Research. Running backs coach Reggie Mitchell will add the title of Recruiting Coordinator. 

So who will be Kansas' next wide receivers coach? Well, after Charlie Weis' extensive search, there was only one man credentialed enough for the prestigious position: Charlie Weis.

"Coach (John) Reagan and I discussed several alternatives and have decided to have me handle the wide receiver position at this time."

Never change, Charlie, never change.

Insert 'schematic advantage' joke here.

I would pay obscene amounts of money to see him demonstrate to these athletes how to properly run a 5 and in slant or deep corner route. On the positive side, he has hands of jelly as opposed to stone, so catching the ball might not be an issue. On the negative side, if he shows how to run a out and up Haiti is going to have more water crashing on their shores soon

I've always said it's hard to be a good coach and be overweight. How can you push your players to be the best and work hard when you are 350? There are exceptions, but I have to agree with coach James Franklin's thought process about coaches and their wives.

I guess he's got some extra time now that he's perfected his recruiting pitch.

He simply tells recruits:

‘Have you looked at that pile of crap out there? Have you taken a look at that?’ So if you don’t think you can play here, where do you think you can play?

Two things here:

KU is trying to cut their football budget.

Urban initially hired himself as special teams coordinator.

They told him if he was going to eat as much as two coaches he needed to work like two coaches.

There are so many shocking updates in this story.

1. Weis still has a job.

2. Weis is a receiver coach

3. Kansas still plays football...

For a defending team, press coverage will need to be 10 yards off the ball.

HC Weis: "What makes you qualified for this job Charlie?"

WR Weis: "Well I am Charlie Weis, you know"

HC Weis: "All the reason I need! You sir are hired"

Fact, this is how it happened
