Weis undergoes successful hip replacement surgery

With the college football world still somewhat “intrigued” over his hiring by Kansas earlier this month, Charlie Weis underwent a planned surgical procedure Monday, the school announced on its official Twitter feed.

According to the tweet, the new Jayhawks head coach had successful hip replacement surgery in Florida yesterday.  Weis will remain in Florida where he still maintains a residence through the Christmas holiday, and will then return to Lawrence at some point next week.

The timing of Weis’ surgery was likely made to coincide with the NCAA’s recruiting calendar.  Monday was the official start to the recruiting dead period,  a time in which coaches are not permitted to make in-home visits or play host to official or unofficial on-campus visits. The dead period also limits coaches to one placing one phone call per recruit per week.

Weis spent last season as Florida’s offensive coordinator before being hired as Turner Gill‘s replacement Dec. 8.

    It wouldn’t hurt for Kansas to tie some of Weis’ bonuses to weight loss which creates a great deal of his physical ailments. However, I wish him well with the team.

    But he seems so healthy.

    So when is his medical malpractice lawsuit scheduled?

    Perhaps they could lop off a couple hundred pounds while he’s laid out on the cutting board!

    He needs to lay off the ho hos.

    The new hip is going to really help his ability to get up and down at buffet line.

    Breast reduction would’ve been more useful, IMO.

    Although the Kansas job does have an automatic slimming effect given the girth of the last coach!!!
