New England Patriots

By Matt McCarthy,

Former Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis reflected on his time with the Patriots in an interview with Zolak & Bertrand to kick off Super Bowl week on Radio Row.

In the sit down, Weis talked about how the sport has changed since he got his start in football, the art of calling a good game as a coordinator, and his confidence in the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII against the Rams on Sunday.

“I think [the Pats will win]. I think it’s Pats big,” Weis said.

Weis also said had Josh McDaniels departed for a head coaching job elsewhere this season, he would have considered returning to the Patriots as coordinator if Bill Belichick called him to offer him his old job.

“I’m glad Josh is still there. That being said, if that would have happened and Bill would have called, I would’ve been there,” said Weis.

Weis, 62, said he has turned down other jobs in recent years, citing a desire for the right fit at the end of his career.

“It would have to be in the right situation…if you’re going to go toward the end of your career, you want to go somewhere that you think that while you’re there…you have a chance to win,” said Weis, who added that he could see himself serving in a mentorship role to a young head coach.
