Charlie Weis To Kansas: Florida's Will Muschamp Says Move To Jayhawks Is 'Great'

Will Muschamp is losing his offensive coordinator to the Kansas Jayhawks, and given his quotes he seems quite pleased. Perhaps that’s because the Florida Gators head coach wasn’t too happy with the results of the 6-6 season the Gators just endured with Charlie Weis as their offensive coordinator. Then again, maybe he sincerely believes it’s a good opportunity for Weis and the University of Kansas.

“There aren’t many opportunities you get to be a head coach,” Muschamp told the Associated Press. “I know Charlie. The last one [Notre Dame] didn’t end the way he wanted it to.

“I asked him, ‘Is this something you’re really interested in doing?’” Muschamp continued. “He said, ‘Yeah, I want to talk to ’em. If I wasn’t interested, I would not talk.’ So I said, ‘I support you 100 percent if that’s what you want to do. I think that’s great.’ Now, when guys make parallel moves, I don’t necessarily agree with that. When guys can further their career, I think it’s great.”

Weis now becomes the 37th head coach in Kansas football history.
