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. That team was led by a tough, rugged head coach with a keen eye for detail, and was largely built on the backs of solid but mostly overlooked Texas recruits. At the end of the day, Zenger had his...

Florida President To McElwain: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis As OC”

University of Florida Bernie Machen sounds confident in the hire of Jim McElwain as head coach, but he’s leerie of who his new coach will choose to become offensive coordinator.

Florida went 6-6 that regular season, finishing 105th in the nation in total offense (332.7 yards per game) and 71st in scoring...

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...
