Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin has reportedly hired Charlie Weis Jr. to become his next offensive coordinator, according to OwlAccess.com.
Weis, the son of former New England Patriots coordinator and Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis Sr., worked as an offensive assistant with the Atlanta Falcons this season and previously worked under Kiffin as an offensive analyst at Alabama. Weis, 24, is set to become the youngest FBS coordinator.
Kiffin guided FAU to the best season in program history after earning an 11-3 record and a win over Akron in the Boca Raton Bowl. Since wrapping up the season, Kiffin has been quite busy recruiting and filling in his coaching staff. It was reported last week that Kiffin will be adding dismissed Auburn wide receiver Kyle Davis to his roster this season. Following that news, it was reported that Kiffin would be adding former Alabama defensive analyst Wes Neighbors as his new safety coach.
With the latest addition of Weis, it appears as though Kiffin is building what could be a special program at FAU.
