Report: Weis likely to be named OC at Florida

Has Will Muschamp landed his offensive coordinator at Florida?

According to the Twitter account of ESPN's Chris Mortensen, and as first suggested by the Gainesville Sun's Pat Dooley, it appears that Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis is likely to accept the role as leader of the Gators offense.

It has been suggested by some members of the media that Chiefs head coach Todd Haley may want to bring in former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels to serve as the new OC, as he has a relationship with quarterback Matt Cassel from their days with the New England Patriots.

It appears, as of now, that the Haley-Weis split is mutual.

Weis, who was replaced by Brian Kelly as head coach of Notre Dame after last season, has done wonders for the Chiefs offensive attack. Cassel has been solid under center, Jamaal Charles could win the rushing title and the offensive line has played very sound.

Muschamp is intent on installing a pro-style offense to help bring in pro-style quarterbacks and receivers to Gainesville.

I'll have more on this as the story progresses. But for now, back to watching Notre Dame and Miami in the Sun Bowl.
