Charlie Weis returned to the Owls nearly a year after his departure. His return brings a wealth of knowledge to the staff after being a part of three Power Five staffs and working with two NFL teams. He also reunites with Head Coach Lane Kiffin after working with Kiffin as an offensive analyst at Alabama. Weis will assume the direction of an FAU offense, as offensive coordinator/QB coach, that returns Devin Singletary, the nation’s highest-ranked running back in rushing touchdowns. He will guide an offense that will have a new starting quarterback, but an offense that averaged 40.8 points per game, which ranked the Owls No. 8 nationally.
The Atlanta Falcons finished third in the NFC South with Weis serving as an offensive analyst.
Weis joined the FAU football staff in December of 2016 as a tight end coach but elected to move to the defending NFC Champion and Super Bowl challenger Atlanta Falcons in February.
Weis comes to FAU from the University of Alabama where he served two seasons as the offensive analyst for the Tides’ quarterbacks and running backs. He was a direct report to then-Alabama Offensive Coordinator Lane Kiffin.
In that role, Weis provided in-season details on opponent’s defensive schemes, worked with in-game communications for adjustments, aided in national recruiting efforts for the running backs, aided in offseason fourth quarter program on speed and agility drills and worked directly with Heisman Trophy-winning running back Derrick Henry during the 2015 season. At Alabama, Weis was a part of building a 30-2 record, winning two SEC Championships and one National Championship.
Weis joined the Alabama staff after a three-year stint as the University of Kansas team manager. While at Kansas, Weis assisted the position coaches in practice by administering and directing drills. He ran position meetings for the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. He also led opponent breakdown in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
New England Patriots
Weis gained extra experience in 2014 (July-August) as a New England Patriots Volunteer Training Camp Intern. In that role, he worked with the offensive staff and assisted tight end coach Brian Daboll creating highlight and lowlight cutups and coordinating quarterback practice production notes.
Prior to KU, Weis served as a University of Florida offensive quality control coach, focusing his efforts with the wide receivers.
