Report: Charlie Weis could become Florida Gators' offensive coordinator

Former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis may be making a return to the college ranks — in Gainesville.

Weis is reportedly incoming Florida coach Will Muschamp's top choice to become the Gators' offensive coordinator.

Weis, 54, currently is the offensive coordinator with the NFL's Chiefs, a position he landed after being fired last season as Notre Dame's head coach. There is some thought that Weis might not be back with Kansas City next season.

Weis compiled a 35-25 record in five seasons at Notre Dame.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Friday that no deal has been agreed upon, but that Weis is expected to accept the job.

The Chiefs are playoff bound and Weis reportedly would remain with the team until it is eliminated, though he would be allowed to call recruits. Muschamp has said he wants to install a pro-style offense.

Chiefs coach Todd Haley said Friday he was "unaware of anything. It would be news to me."
