As a guest on the Joe Rose Radio Show this morning, Will Muschamp explained his hiring of Charlie Weis.
“Charlie’s very close with his family. It’s a situation where his daughter Hannah – they need to move back to South Bend, she’s a special needs child. He and his wife Maura are going to move back to South Bend to a more comfortable place for them where she can go to school.”
“His son Charlie, Jr. is going to college and they were choosing colleges and they looked at the University of Florida and really liked Florida.I kind of heard that through a third party and said this might be an interesting thing to see if we can check out.”
“I called Kansas City and asked for permission to talk to him and got him on the phone there. All of a sudden we had a lot of interest on his end, a lot of interest on our end. At the end of the day, it’s still Florida. It’s a great place to be, it’s a great place to coach.”
Weis will call the plays on Sunday at 1 pm EST when the Chiefs host the Baltimore Ravens. Even if the Chiefs lose, we are hearing it will be a Monday morning decisionon if Weis will attend the FootballScoop Coaches Happy Hour on Monday night in Dallas.
