Mort: Charlie Weis Accepts Job With the Chiefs

New, comments

Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that ex-Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis will accept the position of offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Per Mort's sources, a formal announcement should be made in the next 24-48 hours.

"Weis makes all [the] sense in world," Mort tweeted. "Nobody questioned his offensive prowess at Notre Dame. Cassel ran his system in New England. Great move by Haley."

We've speculated on this hiring for quite some time and in the past few days the rumors have heated considerably.

The Chiefs connection is there:

  • Chiefs head coach Todd Haley and Weis shared an office while with the New York Jets
  • Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was with Weis in New England

Today, Haley told reporters that Weis' system is basically a perfect fit for what he's trying to do in Kansas City.

The Chicago Bears were also reportedly in the mix for Weis' services.

Welcome to Kansas City, Mr. Weis.
