When Charlie Weis replaced Turner Gill as the head football coach at the University of Kansas, it was clear that many heads would roll. Both coaches and players were served notice that things would be drastically different and that many of them would likely no longer be with the university, and perhaps no position was remade more than quarterback. For former starter Jordan Webb, it meant being supplanted as the incumbent. Now Webb is announcing his next move to Colorado to try to start for the Buffaloes.
Reflecting back on the change, Webb seemed understanding of the shift.
"It's just kind of part of the business," Webb said. "I understood that with new guys coming in (Weis) wants some fresh faces at quarterback. If you can get a fresh face, it's gonna look good for the fan base, and I'm really rooting for those guys this year. I'll always be a Jayhawk. I've got some of my best friends on that team."
Webb was 179 of 281 for 1,883 passing yards. That was good for a 63 percent completion rate last season for the Jayhawks while starting every game. He threw 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
