Texas falls to Kansas for first time since 1938, likely sealing Charlie Strong’s fate

The meltdown at Texas continues, with Charlie Strong’s Longhorns falling to 5-6 following a 24-21 overtime loss to the Kansas Jayhawks Saturday. That improved the Jayhawks to just 2-9 this season, and was their first win over Texas since a 19-18 victory back in 1938. Granted, the teams have only played 13 games since then, and didn’t play between 1938 and 1996, but that’s...

Charlie Weis finally no longer being paid by Notre Dame

Former Notre Dame coach blames failures at school on ‘ambitious’ assistants

There are probably some former coaches that should keep their mouths shut about past experiences and schools they drove into the ground. Charlie Weis is one of those people. Weis was so bad that Notre Dame and Kansas are paying him millions of dollars NOT to coach at either school anymore. Yet, Weis wants you to know it wasn’t his fault that his time in South Bend was such an...

Florida President Overheard Discussing Next Offensive Coordinator: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis”

The major failing of Will Muschamp’s tenure at Florida was his inability to field a competent offense to match what was a very good Gators defense. From 2011-2014, Florida’s offenses finished 71st, 78th, 113th, and 56th. Former Notre Dame, and most recently, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator of that 2011 team, and he clearly didn’t leave a great impression...

Dreadful Offensive Numbers Forced Kansas to Fire Charlie Weis

Kansas football did what it had to Sunday, firing Charlie Weis just into his third season as head coach. Why Make the Change Now? Make no mistake about it: this is something KU had to do right now. Sure, it’s usually not a good thing for a program to terminate its coach in the middle of a season, with eight games remaining on the schedule. However, sometimes a leadership change...

Kansas’ Charlie Weis Says His Players ‘Should Just Shut Up’
