King: Chiefs, Two Others on the Early List of Favorites to Land Weis

More and more folks are coming out speculating on the future of who many of us presume will soon be former Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis.

Peter King reported on NBC's Football Night in America that there are three teams, including the Chiefs, landing on the early list of favorite to land Weis's services.

Kansas City Chiefs

Makes sense because of the Scott Pioli/Todd Haley connection.

With Tom Brady's former backup, and familiar faces like Pioli and Haley, this is the place that might feel the most like New England (outside of New England).  And it makes sense he would try to replicate his situation in New England since that is where he had the most success.

New England Patriots

This is the most likely according to a lot of speculation.  The Patriots don't have an offensive coordinator named right now and his familiarity with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady would make this a no-brainer if the other stuff could be worked out.

Carolina Panthers

An interesting situation with head coach John Fox reportedly entering the hot seat.

The Panthers don't really have a quarterback of the future at this point so I'm not sure this would be a desired option for Weis.

King also points to the Indianapolis Colts as a dark horse to land Weis.  However, he says that seems unlikely since offensive coordinator Tom Moore is expected to stick around for 2010.
