Kansas head coach Charlie Weis is shaking up the responsibilities of his coaching staff as they prepare for the second half of the season starting with Oklahoma. In an effort to get more help from his assistant coaches, he has put quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus in charge of the passing game and tight ends coach Jeff Blasko will oversee the running game while Weis will oversee the entire offense and help with coaching skill positions.
The Jayhawk offense ranks 115th in the nation in yards per game with just 305 per contest and Weis is looking for something, anything to give his team a spark and do more offensively. This is the latest in a series of moves that Weis has made to try to shake up and improve things.
Most of his moves have been focused on personnel as the Jayhawk offense has used 8 different starting offensive linemen and 6 different wide receivers. In the past month, he has made 13 different changes to the offensive personnel that were not related to injuries. The hope is that this latest move will get more input from the assistant coaches that will make it so Weis is not overloaded in his responsibilities as well as get different thoughts on what they can do to help the offense. For the Jayhawks, things cannot really get any worse.
