According to NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi, the Kansas City Chiefs have made Weis the offensive coordinator.
When asked about Weis’ new post with the Chiefs, head coach Todd Haley stated,
“Charlie’s a guy I have a great amount of respect for as a coach,” said Haley, who called the offensive plays during a rocky, 4-12 first season with the Chiefs. “He’s a coach that system-wise, I would say we’re as close as you can be. Charlie’s a guy I consider a friend and I’ve talked to throughout the year, no different from some of the other guys I lean on for things and advice.”
In this new role, Weis won’t have to worry about fundraising or rubbing elbows with alumni and boosters, neither of which was his strengths. Now he can solely focus on play calling and offensive scheming.
Whether he will succeed or not in this role is unknown, but because the NFL is the league of second, third, and fourth chances, he will have ample opportunities to prove his worth.
Coaches/coordinators Marty Mornhinweg, Rod Marinelli and Lovie Smith can certainly attest to that.
