Weis relishes chance at redemption at KU

It is a Sunday morning in New Jersey in the late 1970s, and a fresh-faced kid is searching through the morning newspaper, scanning the classifieds. He sees two job openings: Two high schools need an English teacher who can also coach football. He hasn’t played since high school, but how hard could it be? He picks up a phone and sets up an interview. Two days later, Boonton High School has a new assistant coach.
