Charlie Weis has agreed to become the Chiefs' offensive coordinator.

Weis will assume the coordinator duties that were carried out by head coach Todd Haley this past season after Haley relieved Chan Gailey of his coordinator duties Aug. 31. Haley and Weis were both assistant coaches with the Jets from 1997-99.

"Charlie is a friend of mine," Haley told the team's Web site prior to any official announcement of the hiring. "We shared three years together in a room not even able to have two full-sized desks in there. Charlie is a guy that I have a great amount of respect for as a coach. He is a coach that, system-wise, we are as close as you can be.

"Charlie is a guy who I've talked to throughout the year, no different than I talk to Coach (Bill) Parcells or some of the other guys that I lean on for thoughts or advice," Haley continued. "I cannot say that I haven't talked to Charlie, because I do talk to Charlie.

"... Charlie would allow us to run the offense we've been running if he were in this mix," Haley said. "We're in that process right now throughout the whole staff."

Weis spent the past five seasons at Notre Dame, where he compiled a 35-27 record before being fired last month. He will be reunited with Chiefs GM Scott Pioli, who was in New England when Weis coached there under Bill Belichick.

The Chiefs' Web site confirmed that the contracts of DL coach Tim Krumrie and assistant OL coach Joe D'Alessandris would not be renewed. Both were hired by former Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards.
