LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Rotating players on the depth chart hasn’t worked so well for Kansas this season, so now coach Charlie Weis is shaking up coaching responsibilities to jumpstart his struggling team.
Weis announced Tuesday that he would change how the offensive staff operates. Quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus will be in charge of the passing game, tight ends coach Jeff Blasko will take over the running game and Weis will oversee the offense and help coach skill positions.
Weis also said he wants to receive input from the offensive coaches and have their ideas be the base for the game plan, rather than formulating the majority of it himself.
The first chance to showcase all the changes comes Saturday against No. 18 Oklahoma.
