Will Muschamp’s first offensive coordinator is throwing in the towel on his offensive genius reputation.
The wheels are in motion for Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis to bring in an offensive coordinator following this season.
The Journal-World reported Wednesday afternoon that KU offensive line coach Tim Grunhard would step down after Saturday’s 11 a.m. season finale against Kansas State, and Weis confirmed the report Wednesday evening in a statement.
“Sunday, Tim Grunhard is stepping down as offensive line coach so he can spend more quality time with his family,” said Weis, who revealed that Grunhard’s replacement had already been hired but would not be announced until that coach “becomes available.”
Sources have told the Journal-World that Rice offensive coordinator John Reagan, a former KU assistant on Mark Mangino’s staff, will be hired to serve in the dual role of OC and O-line coach and bring his offense to Lawrence.
I never knew that “more quality time with his family” is a euphemism for “Tom Brady made me look a lot smarter than I really am”.
Fear not, Jayhawk Nation! Weis can now turn his talents, such as they are, to leading the Kansas program to greatness.
The move would free up Weis to focus entirely on running the program as head coach, a role that entails recruiting, motivating players on the field and in the classroom, instilling discipline and challenging assistants in a variety of ways.
I know I’m pumped.
