Twitter has field day with Charlie Weis firing

Weis goneFootball 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.

Charlie Weis went 6-22 in two seasons as head coach at Kansas, which probably makes him the 2nd or 3rd winningest coach in school history.

  1. Fat both, Al.

    What I don’t get is didn’t this guy already have gastric bypass surgery?

    Is he just eating cheeseburgers on top of that?

    I’m pretty sure the doctor gave him some health and dietary guidelines. Did he just toss that paper aside along with his ability to win football games?
