I'm actually quite confident that a cocky blowhard like Weis would never be interviewed by Brandon.  

The guy Brandon would look for is a more mousy kind of guy, who would be okay with Brandon sitting in on everything and constantly looking over his shoulder.

Clint Bowen will be the interim head coach, according to athletic director Sheahon Zenger.

"I normally do not favor changing coaches mid-season," Zenger said in a release. "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."

Well they got balls. We don't. DB -- It is Kansas for crying out loud. They care about their FootBall, even though they are not good at it.

And we don't fire Hoke?

It's really a great system if you can pull it off, I think:

1) Build name as potential up-and-coming potential coach

2) Get hired by storied program

3) Secure lengthy contract extension with generous pay before tanking

4) Get fired, lay low in NFL for a year

5) Return to college as coordinator

6) Take first available Power 5 head coaching position

7) Secure contract and decent salary, fail again, get fired again

8) ???

9) Profit

is done as a head coach.  You don't fail at Kansas and get another job at a major program.


Kansas has now fired Turner Gill and Charlie Weiss after just 2 seasons each, that is a terrible way to run a program.

Weis is a guy that should have stayed under a great coach and get his coffee and playbook. Man, this guy somehow sold himself for so long and made money out of it.

A great QB can make you look like a genius. He should give half his money to Tom Brady and Bill.
