Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - The Kansas City Chiefs officially named former Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis their offensive coordinator on Friday.

The Chiefs spent last season without an offensive coordinator, as first-year head coach Todd Haley dismissed Chan Gailey from the post before the regular season began. Haley ran the offense himself in a 4-12 campaign.

Weis has a history with Haley, having worked with him during his three seasons with the Jets from 1997-99 as part of Bill Parcells' staff. Haley had previously stated that having Weis on the staff would allow the team to run the appropriate offensive scheme.

The offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots between 2000-04, Weis helped guide the club to three Super Bowl titles. Also in the Patriots organization at that time was current Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli.

Weis' success in New England garnered him a position as head coach at Notre Dame, his alma mater, in 2005.

After early success in his first season, Weis was given a lucrative 10-year contract that he didn't live up to in his five-year reign in South Bend.

The 2009 Fighting Irish finished a disappointing 6-6, dropping Weis's record to 35-27 at the school. He was fired immediately after the season and replaced by Cincinnati's Brian Kelly shortly thereafter.

Weis was also rumored to be in line for the open coordinator position for the Chicago Bears.

Yup, he looks awful (physically), but, I liked what the way he called a game while at NE. And, since, there really is no completely definitive resolution to the effects of the cheating I would hire him.

Weiss is crap, just like the rest of the ex ***s. If they ain't cheating, they ain't winning. Where's Romeo?

no thanks to fat charlie. i think he is garbage. those pats teams had a very good defense and tom brady. i could of called their plays on offense and gotten the same result. we already have an oc who is a pass first run never coach. charlie has pretty much the same philosphy. i didnt know this but i guess fat charlie had his stomach stapled and lost 150 lbs or so. although it didnt take him long to gain it all back :lol:
