Another former member of the Patriots organization is headed to Kansas City.
Charlie Weis has agreed to be the offensive coordinator of the Chiefs, according to Chris Mortensen. An announcement could come within the next 24-48 hours.
Head coach Todd Haley has a strong offensive philosophy, but he said Wednesday that it fits with what Weis does.
“He’s a coach that system-wise, I would say we’re as close as you can
be,” Haley said before Mortensen’s report came out. “Charlie’s a guy I consider a friend and I’ve talked to throughout
the year, no different from some of the other guys I lean on for things
Both Weis and Haley have combative personalities, but they worked together in the past under the Jets. Weis also will reunite with Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli.
Matt Cassel was drafted by the Patriots just after Weis left for Notre Dame, but clearly the system he learned has a lot of Weis involved. Weis’ greatest selling point has to be his work with quarterbacks.
Clearly there’s just one thing left for Haley to do. Romeo Crennel, anyone?
