Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish and new Kansas Jayhawk head Charlie Weis has not exactly made many friends during his career. His stints as an assistant coach under Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick seemed to go well enough; he collected one ring as an offensive assistant and special teams coach on the 1990 New York Giants team coached by Parcells, and was awarded the other three as offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots under Belichick.
But those stints under the Two Bills have been the only jobs that ended well for Coach Weis. We will delve a little deeper on his depressing stint with his alma mater, but it is worth remembering that his rebound jobs as offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs and Florida Gators also ended in gnashing of teeth. While his work as Chiefs' OC resulted in the number one rushing offense in the NFL, he showed no ability to maintain a working relationship with then Chiefs head coach Todd Haley. Weis returned to the college game last season in Gainesville under first year head coach Will Muschamp and Gator fans were not exactly gutted by his decision to bolt for the Jayhawks' head coach job.

This was not the dying moment of an ugly loss. This was a feel-good charity softball game in the middle of the summer, for heaven's sake, when everybody was feeling happy and upbeat.
Still the boos rained down on poor Matt Cassel.
A few weeks earlier, in another sign of the little regard so many in Kansas City seem to have for their quarterback, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt had...
The Chiefs signed offensive tackle Ray Willis and waived fullback Taylor Gentry. Kansas City needed to add another veteran offensive tackle when Tony Ugoh decided to retire after being signed last week.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (18)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 6): Crazy AFC West. Chiefs and Cassel play well.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 14): KC fans booed Matt Cassel at recent team function, but we get sense there'll be more cheers with bounce-back season we see for Chiefs.
Conference USA produced the 11th pick of last April's draft when the Kansas City Chiefs selected defensive tackle Dontari Poe. Marshall's Vinny Curry was next as the Philadelphia Eagles drafted the pass rusher in round two.
