Charlie Weis Fired As Kansas Coach [Twitter Reacts]

Charlie Weis is no longer the head football coach for the Kansas Jayhawks.

The former Notre Dame coach was fired this weekend after the Jayhawks lost 23-0 to Texas. The Jayhawks are 2-2 this season and just 6-22 under Weis.

Athletic director Sheahon Zenger said:

“I normally do not favor changing coaches mid-season … But I believe we have talented coaches and players in this program, and I think this decision gives our players the best chance to begin making progress right away. I appreciate what Coach Weis did with several facets of our football program. But we have not made the on-the-field progress we believe we should. I believe new leadership gives our coaches and players the best chance to make a fresh start.”

Here’s Charlie Weis’ last press conference as head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks.

SB Nation reports that Defensive coordinator Clint Bowen, who played for the Jayhawks in the 90s, will replace Charlie Weis as interim head coach.

Of course, it’s not all bad news for Charlie Weis. He may not have a coaching job at the moment but he does have piles and piles of cash back home.

Do you think Kansas made the right decision to fire Charlie Weis?
