It’s mid-May and Will Muschamp is still having to answer questions about why he chose Charlie Weis — long of the NFL and briefly of Notre Dame — to run his offense at Florida.
“The track record speaks for itself,” the coach said last week in Tampa. “From a play-calling standpoint, a developer of quarterbacks; Matt Cassel, Tom Brady, four Super Bowl rings and 16 years of NFL experience speaks for itself.”
Yes, it does. Weis might not have succeeded as a head coach in South Bend, but he has succeeded at just about every stop as an offensive coordinator. In addition, Muschamp says he and Weis share many beliefs when it comes to offensive attacks.
