FAU's Lane Kiffin tabs Charlie Weis Jr., 24, as new OC

Lane Kiffin's new offensive coordinator at Florida Atlantic isn't old enough to have a mid-life crisis

Kiffin told ESPN he hired Weis Jr. on Monday, after the Atlanta Falcons' playoff loss.

Lane Kiffin is hoping the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree.

"He's way ahead of his time in how he sees the game, his football IQ and just his overall intelligence", Kiffin said.

FAU will enter the 2018 campaign with plenty of talent on the roster after an 11-3 finish in Kiffin's first year as Owls head coach which was capped off by a Conference USA Championship and a win in the Boca Raton Bowl. Yes, Weis Jr.is the son of former Kansas and Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis.

Monte Kiffin, a defensive assistant for eight different National Football League franchises, works as on his son's staff. According to Owl Access, Weis is now the youngest current coordinator at the FBS level. FAU returns many key pieces of the nation's No. 9 offense, including quarterback Jason Driskel, running back Devin Singletary and wide receiver Willie Wright. Weis, 24, will take over for OC Kendal Briles, who left for the same position at Houston earlier this winter. He's already got a bunch of experience - he was an offensive analyst at Alabama from 2015-16 and was a volunteer intern for the Patriots in 2014. He's previously worked as a quality control coach with the Florida Gators.

Weis Jr. attended college at the University of Florida, but followed his father to Kansas when the elder Weis landed the head coaching job at that school.
