Charlie Weis Has Successful Hip Surgery, According To Report

Kansas University announced via its official Twitter feed that new football head coach Charlie Weis successfully underwent a hip replacement procedure in Florida on Monday. 

Weis, who appeared using a cane at halftime of a recent Jayhawks basketball game to address fans, will stay in Florida to recover. Although not officially acknowledged, the operation was likely timed with the start of the NCAA "dead period" of recruiting (in which coaches are not allowed to make in-home or in-person visits with potential recruits). Weis is scheduled to return to Lawrence after the holidays, according to the school.

Weis has been very noticeably recruiting current Notre Dame quarterback and former Weis recruit Dayne Crist, set to transfer from the Irish, as well as BYU quarterback Jake Heaps, who is transferring from BYU, and was recruited by Weis during his time as Notre Dame head coach.
