Source: Charlie Weis called every play
Despite speculation to the contrary, Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis called all of Kansas City's plays during Sunday's wild-card loss to Baltimore, according to a team source.
610 Sports in Kansas City reported Monday that Chiefs coach Todd Haley stripped Weis of play-calling duties at halftime of the loss. However, a Chiefs source insisted that Haley did not take over play-calling duties from Weis and that Weis called every play in the game, including the controversial fourth-and-inches call that was stopped for a loss.
Weis and Haley got along for most of the season, but lately their relationship had deteriorated to the point where it would have been difficult for each to work with the other for another season. Weis recently accepted a job to become offensive coordinator at Florida, where he also will get to work with his son Charlie, a freshman at the school.
But one Chiefs source with knowledge of the team's play-calling said Sunday that any idea that Haley stripped Weis of his responsibilities was "just outright lies."
