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.
