Tim Grunhard‘s departure won’t be the only movement on Charlie Weis‘ Kansas coaching staff. Reportedly.
The Lawrence Journal-World reported Wednesday that Rice offensive coordinator John Reagan will be hired in the same capacity with the Jayhawks. Weis has served as his own coordinator his first two seasons with the football program.
It would serve as a homecoming of sorts for Reagan as he served as KU’s offensive line coach and run-game coordinator under Mark Mangino before moving on to the Owls in 2010. Reagan will also reportedly take on the role of line coach in his return to Lawrence, replacing Grunhard in that capacity.
In confirming Grunhard’s departure, Weis stated that he has “already hired a replacement for Tim” and “[w]hen that coach becomes available, we will provide more details.”
Just when Reagan would join the Jayhawks is unclear. Rice’s regular-season finale is this weekend but, with a win, the Owls would earn a berth in the Conference USA title game the following weekend. The Owls will also play in a bowl game at some point in December.
