CHARLIE WEIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kansas Swings for the Fences By Hiring David Beaty

When Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger set out to find the replacement for Charlie Weis, he likely hearkened back to the glory days of the Jayhawks’ run to the 2008 Orange Bowl.

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.

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...
