Report: Charlie Weis “likely” headed to Florida

Well, that didn’t take long.
Less than an hour after we passed along a couple of suggestions that Charlie Weis could leave Kansas City and wind up at University of Florida as offensive coordinator, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that Weis’ move to Florida is “likely.”
Chiefs coach Todd Haley was asked about the rumor Friday and said that it was the first he heard of it. Haley didn’t deny the report, according to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star.
Weis’ possible motivation for a change (and the Chiefs’ motivation to let him go) is unclear. Weis may want to get back into college football or perhaps he and Chiefs coach Todd Haley just didn’t want to continue working together.
Either way, it’s a surprising revelation for perhaps the most improved offense in the league only one week before a home playoff game.
