Florida President Overheard Discussing Next Offensive Coordinator: "I Don't Want Another Charlie Weis"

The major failing of Will Muschamp's tenure at Florida was his inability to field a competent offense to match what was a very good Gators defense. From 2011-2014, Florida's offenses finished 71st, 78th, 113th, and 56th. Former Notre Dame, and most recently, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator of that 2011 team, and he clearly didn't leave a great impression from his time in Gainesville. Florida president Bernie Machen was overheard discussing the future of the offensive coordinator position, and was pretty clear on what he thought about the job that Weis did a few years ago.

Ouch.

Luckily for Machen, McElwain has an extensive offensive background. If anyone should be able to turn the Gators around on that end of the ball, it is him.
