Charlie Weis announces new KU WRs coach is… Charlie Weis

In revamping his Kansas coaching staff, Charlie Weis is literally taking on-field matters into his own hands.

In a press release revealing staff adjustments, Weis announced that he himself will take over as the Jayhawks’ wide receivers coach.  Weis will replace Ron Ianello, who spent the past two seasons as receivers coach as well as recruiting coordinator but will now be moving to a new position in the program.

Replacing Ianello on that particular recruiting front will be Reggie Mitchell.

“I have decided to adjust our staff,” said Weis in a statement. “Reggie Mitchell will return to a position he is very familiar with as our recruiting coordinator. Rob Ianello will move to an off-field position as director of research, spending most of his time on recruiting. [New offensive coordinator John] Reagan and I discussed several alternatives and have decided to have me handle the wide receiver position at this time.”

The moves come a couple of weeks after, for the first time since being hired at KU in 2012, Weis added an offensive coordinator to his staff.  During his first two seasons in Lawrence, Weis served as his own coordinator.

“Coach Weis and I discussed our approach moving forward,” said Reagan. “I decided, and we have agreed, that the best immediate answer is to have Coach Weis handle the wide receiver position.”

    How does Charlie Weiss still have a job? Actually, how does he ever get hired? Abject failure at every job he’s ever had except when Bellicheater told him what plays to call.

    In 2+ years, Weis has done more re-arranging of his staff than most coaches do in five. No wonder he hasn’t been more successful — even he doesn’t know what his coaching philosophy is.

    I thought this would be about his kid allowed on the sidelines with a headset again.

    While not nepotistic, the actual move might be even more embarrassing.

    I guess he decided if he can’t coach the “pile of crap” receivers up, then he can’t coach any level…

    Livin’ large my friend. Livin’ large.
