Charlie Weis enters his first season as Kansas City’s offensive coordinator in 2010. He begins his 16th NFL season and his 32nd season in the coaching ranks. Weis returns to the NFL coaching fraternity following a five-year tenure as the head coach at Notre Dame (2005-09).

Weis previously enjoyed offensive coordinator stints with New England (2000-04) and the N.Y. Jets (’98-99). He has coached in five Super Bowls, owns four Super Bowl rings and has been a part of teams that have appeared in six AFC Championship Games. Weis was instrumental in the development of Patriots QB Tom Brady, who entered the league as a sixth-round pick in 2000 and who has since become a two-time Super Bowl MVP and five-time Pro Bowl performer.

He compiled a 35-27 record as head coach at Notre Dame, tallying 19 victories his first two seasons, the most in a two-year period at the school since ’92-93. He also led the Fighting Irish to consecutive BCS Bowl Games for the first time in Notre Dame annals. His squad went 9-3 to earn a berth in the Fiesta Bowl in 2005 and went 10-2 in 2006 to reach the Sugar Bowl.

During his tenure in South Bend, Weis also tutored QBs Brady Quinn (3,919 yards in 2005) and Jimmy Clausen (3,722 yards in 2009), who posted the two most prolific passing seasons in Notre Dame history.

WR Golden Tate also flourished under Weis’ tutelage, establishing school single-season records for receptions (93) and receiving yards (1,496 yards), while tying for the top mark in TD catches (15). Tate won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top wide receiver in 2009, concluding his collegiate career with a school-record 2,707 receiving yards.

The Patriots won three Super Bowls during Weis’ tenure with that club as New England joined Dallas (’92-95) as the only other team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls over a four-year span. The Patriots posted a 53-27 (.663) regular season record and a pristine 9-0 postseason mark during Weis’ tenure in Foxborough. Under Weis’ direction from 2001-04, Brady threw 97 TD passes, the fourth-highest total in the NFL over that span.

The Patriots produced a 14-2 regular season record for a second consecutive season in 2004 as New England compiled 2,134 rushing yards, the club’s highest total since ’85. The Patriots capped the year with a victory in Super Bowl XXXIX vs. Philadelphia as WR Deion Branch was named the game’s MVP. Brady was named Super Bowl MVP for a second time in 2003 as the Patriots posted a 32-29 victory in Super Bowl XXXVIII.

In 2001, Weis served as offensive coordinator and also took on the added responsibilities of coaching the quarterbacks after the death of coach Dick Rehbein in August. After QB Drew Bledsoe was injured in the second game of the season, Brady was thrust into the lineup.

Under Weis’ guidance, the second-year signal-caller thrived, earning his first Pro Bowl berth. Brady played an integral role in guiding New England to a victory over heavily-favored St. Louis in Super Bowl XXXVI, and was named the game’s MVP. Weis began his tenure on Bill Belichick’s staff in New England in 2000.
