Football lifer Charlie Weis was fired by the University of Kansas this weekend after starting off his career in Lawrence with six wins and twenty-two losses. Not that Kansas is an easy place to win football games but that’s clearly not the record they were hoping for when they hired the man.
Weis is an easy target (insert weight reference here) which is probably what prompted his name to appear on Twitter’s trending list shortly after his dismissal. Here were some of the best Tweets from a Sunday afternoon that found Weis unemployed but certainly not wondering where he was going to find his next paycheck.
