Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley confirmed Sunday that offensive coordinator Charlie Weis is heading to the University of Florida to take the same role as part of new head coach Will Muschamp's staff.
Haley confirmed the reports of Weis moving to Florida after the Chiefs lost to the Oakland Raiders. Weis spent just one season with the Chiefs after a stint as head coach at Notre Dame. Weis' reputation is on the offensive side of the ball. Muschamp was the defensive coordinator at Texas before taking the Florida job.
"Charlie Weis is moving on," Haley told reporters in his post-game press conference. "He's going to the University of Florida as the coordinator. There obviously was a lot of speculation on that .... Charlie and I and the Chiefs had a bunch of real productive conversations this weekend, really productive. This is a bittersweet deal for me as the head coach because Charlie was obviously somebody I was real excited about having in here. That being said, Charlie is a family guy and he's got a family situation where he can go to Florida and be with his son who's going to get into coaching. Without talking personally about Charlie, this is a great situation for Charlie and I respect it 100 percent, we respect it 100 percent."
Florida did not announce anything official about Weis on Sunday. But Muschamp did name five to his staff.
