I had heard you were flipping burgers now, but I didn't believe it until I read this post. Don't forget to ask about fries.

First time in 2011 that I am excited about Kansas Football!

Coach Weis is a man takeing care of his family and he is looking to retire a wealthy man after his stint with KU. Listening to his first interview and other interviews he has conducted on the web, His wife is very secure in Ocala, FL with her horses and they finally found a great place for there special needs daughter Hannah. You can hear it, at least I can. He has this all planned out in how he is going to retire when he is done here at KU. Coach Weis will help out his son with his coaching asperations at the expense of our football team. He is highly motivated for his son to succeed although his sole motivation should be molding our team to win championships. Zenger will make this happen with a 2.5 mil per year contract. I believe Weis realized this in a short period of time that this coaching position will catapult him into retirement and future security for his family in a few years. I feel the ND job was a eye opener and he felt the pressure there more to win championships. Here, he believes we will be happy to win 5-6 games a year and we will settle and make him the greatest coach that coached at KU. I really hope I'am wrong and he will make KU you a powerhouse, but then again this might be my expectations?? Good Luck coach!

Thought it was a good hire for KU until this! sounds like he is in it just for the money! How can he live in Lawrence and his wife in FL and he be committed to the football program at KU?

I sure agree with the above comments. I too thought this would be a good hire for KU football. Then I listened to this press conference and read the reports on the hire. First, I don't see how a $2.5 mil a year, 5 year year contract is justified. Second, it's a tremendous slur against Lawrence and Kansas to suggest that his developmentally challenged daughter can't get every bit as good care in Lawrence as she can in Ocala, Florida. Third, if he's so committed to family, and they are so close, how can he justify being separated from his wife and daughter for 5 years. Finally, is his physical condition good enough to handle the job. He's going to have his first hip replacement within the next two weeks. I've had three hip replacements. My first one disabled me for a month. The second was a failure and had to be redone. There was a lot of rehab time involved. I don't see how a man can give the attention required to rebuilding a football program while giving so much attention to his family, 1,500 miles away, and while he's also recovering from serious orthopedic surgeries. Next, and correct me if I'm wrong, I understand his wife is being provided unlimited transportation between Florida and Lawrence for conjugal visits at University expense. Dr. Zenger, though I haven't said it, I have fully supported you. I like your Hays, Kansas and the rest of your Kansas background. Now, however, I have to question your decision in this matter. By the way, Coach Weise, from personal experience I can tell you that your knee and hip joints will fare much better if you'll lose about 100 pounds. I didn't have to lose that much, but I lost a lot, and I'm in much better condition for it. Maybe I'm saying I want to see your committment, Coach Weise. Move your famil to Lawrence. Do what is necessary to improve your health. Show us your not in this just to be able to retire a wealthy man in five years or sooner. Do that an you'll have my support! And so will the University! (Well, it already does.)
