Weis had 11 years of high school and college coaching experience when he joined Bill Parcells’ New York Giant staff in 1990. After three years with the Giants he rejoined Parcells in 1993 in New England. Weis was the TE coach in 1994 when Ben Coates was an All Pro, with career highs of 96 receptions and 1174 yards receiving. The following season Weis was the RB coach, when rookie Curtis Martin rushed for 1487 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Then in n 2000 Bill Belichick added Weiss to his newly formed staff in New England as offensive coordinator. As the OC Weis had a critical role in Tom Brady’s first NFL season as starting quarterback. That 2001 season of course culminated in the first of seven (and counting) Patriot Super Bowl victories. All his then-neophyte quarterback went on to accomplish was to become the best there ever was. Not a flash in the pan, Weis earned two more rings in Super Bowls 38 and 39. He left New England to become head coach of Notre Dame in 2005. Later he was the OC for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2010, OC for the Florida Gators in 2011, and head coach at Kansas from 2012-14. Though he may be bored now that he is no longer working, his family should be set for generations thanks to buyouts.
