Weis and Hill to UF?

Reports are circulating that Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis and Miami Hurricanes wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator Aubrey Hill are headed to Gainesville to be on staff with new Florida Gator head coach Will Muschamp. We have talked to many of our sources and have come up with some responses to these reports as well.

With all the bowl games going on right now, the biggest ‘possible' news of the day is the mention that Charlie Weis may be heading to the University of Florida to be the offensive coordinator under the head coach direction of Will Muschamp. Reports on all the major news services have the Weis move happening and we here at Fightin' Gators have word from two unnamed Florida players and another trusted source that they are expecting Weis to be named the offensive coordinator.

The move would be a good and definite dramatic one for the Gators. A proven track record of success in both the NFL and college not many can compare to Weis' resume when it comes to getting quarterbacks and the passing game ready to play on Saturday or Sunday for that matter.

The former Notre Dame head coach has worked under Bill Belichick during his most successful years at the New England Patriots and is currently the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs.

There have been denials from officials of the Chiefs but nothing from Weis yet. Nothing is official.

Stories also started circulating late Friday night that Aubrey Hill may be brought on to be the wide receivers coach at Florida. Hill was a four year letter winner at Florida in the early 90's and was part of the program as it rose to meteoric heights under coach Steve Spurrier.

Hill was a grad assistant for three years at Florida including 1996 when the Gators won the national title. He has been a full time assistant for the last 12 years at Duke, Elon College, Pittsburgh, and has spent the last three years as the receivers coach at Miami where he also served as the recruiting coordinator.

There has been no official word on Hill either and we aren't ready to say this is a definite move, but more a real possibility, Stay tuned to Fightin' Gators as we dig further.
