Now that Todd Haley is gone, some old faces can come back to the building. After only one year with the Kansas City Chiefs, former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis left to take the same position back at the college level with the Florida Gators. Now he's the head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks after Turner Gill was fired. It's been a roller coaster for the last few years for Weis, but it's clear he's now welcome back at Arrowhead now that Haley is gone.
Just got back from Chiefs OTA. Very encouraging. Sad news on Bill Stewart. He was a nice man and excellent coach. Grades in. Much improved.— Coach Charlie Weis (@CoachWeisKansas) May 21, 2012
Apparently Weis was back visiting old friends from his days in New England since Romeo Crennel, Scott Pioli and Brian Daboll are all in house. Weis also likely knows several players from his stint here in 2010. It was rumored that he and Haley butted heads, leading to his exit after one season, but it was a memorable one for the Chiefs offense in which even Matt Cassel made the Pro Bowl.
As for Stewart, the former West Virginia football coach died suddenly today from a heart attack.
