KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley says he has no knowledge of offensive coordinator Charlie Weis possibly taking a similar job with the University of Florida.
Various media reports stated Weis might leave the Chiefs for Florida after this season.
Haley said Friday he was “unaware of anything.”
“It would be news to me,” Haley said.
Weis became offensive coordinator in Kansas City this season after getting fired as coach at Notre Dame last year.
He’s helped the Chiefs make a worst-to-first turnaround and win the AFC West. Under his tutelage, quarterback Matt Cassel has thrown 27 touchdown passes and only five interceptions.
Weis was not available to reporters.

Raiders plagued
with injuries

ALAMEDA, Calif. — Raiders coach Tom Cable says running back Darren McFadden and defensive tackle Richard Seymour are questionable for Oakland’s season finale at Kansas City.
McFadden is nursing a sore left toe and Seymour has a hamstring injury. Both sat out practice Friday and will be game-time decisions today against the Chiefs.
McFadden leads the Raiders with 1,157 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. He needs 43 yards to become the fourth player in franchise history to reach the 1,200 mark in a season. Marcus Allen, Napoleon Kaufman and Mark van Eeghen are the others.
