When Charlie Weis left the Kansas City Chiefs last year after just one season as the offensive coordinator to take the same position with the University of Florida it was supposedly so he could spend time with his son. After all, the younger Weis was enrolling with the Gators and wanted to go into coaching and his father was going to help him out.
It would appear it only took one year for the Father-Son bond to fully prepare Charlie’s son to be on his own. That’s because Weis is leaving Florida to become the head coach at Kansas.
When Weis left the Chiefs he scoffed at those that said it was because he couldn’t coexist with Chiefs head coach Todd Haley.
“Why does there have to be a different agenda than having things fall just right for your family later in your career?”
To show everyone just how dedicated he was to spending time with his family, Weis talked about how he could grow old in the Sunshine State.
“I could see myself ending up here,” Weis said. “I could see myself retiring in Ocala. … I’m buying. Not renting.”
Well, clearly he should have been renting.
