UPDATE 4:10 p.m. ET: Pro Football Talk has gone back and put our a major disclaimer on this story. Here is PFT's Mike Florio explaining. Judge the story for yourself:

Appearing on one of the station’s other shows, Fescoe explained that he received two text messages from patrons of a pizza shop that Weis supposedly frequents.  (Fescoe refused to name because he didn’t want to give the place “free advertising.”)  According to the persons who sent Fescoe text messages, Weis was openly stating in the unnamed pizza place that the play-calling duties had been yanked from him at halftime.

Fescoe didn’t hear it from Weis, but from two folks who texted him to say that Weis was saying it.  And Fescoe then went with it without getting a comment from Weis or from the Chiefs.
----------

When Sunday’s Chiefs-Ravens game kicked off,T. Haley (US Presswire) Charlie Weis knew he might very well be calling plays in Kansas City for the last time. What he probably didn’t know was that the last time would last less than three quarters. Bob Fescoe of 610 Sports in Kansas City reports (via Pro Football Talk) that Haley stripped Weis of the play-calling duties during the second half of the game.

This news is significant for a variety of reasons, none of which shine a flattering light on Haley. For starters, since when is an offensive coordinator -- a multi-Super Bowl-winning offensive coordinator, no less – relieved of play-calling duties DURING a playoff game?

Second, it is now far less believable that Weis chose to take the Florida offensive coordinator job strictly for family and lifestyle reasons. Prior to the season, many doubted that Haley, known for having a big ego, would be able to resist marking up Weiss’ offense with his fingerprints. When the pressure was on, that proved to be the case.

What does this say about the chemistry of Kansas City’s coaching staff moving forward? And what top offensive assistant will want to go work for Haley?

Goto college for a year, and then come back and run the Jets offense... Schotty will get hired away somewhere hopefully.  Rex lets his O coordinator run his own ship... Weiss would be perfect...

BazeBaller,

Weis most likely had a clause in his contract that forbid him from making a lateral move to another NFL team (he couldn't be the OC for another team if he broke his contract with the Chiefs).  So, he takes a lucrative job in college for a year, then returns to the NFL after that.  My bet is that he will be back in the NFL calling plays for someone not named Todd Haley in 2012.

Regardless of who called the plays, Weis was made a huge difference this season (his first and last with KC).  Now that Weis is moving on, everyone is going to see what KC is with Haley and without Weis.  A losing team.  A good example is the last two games of KC's season, they fell apart.  During that same period, Weis had decided to move on to FLA.  No different in other businesses, talented and smart people move on, they don't follow a leader that is going nowhere.  That is what Haley is doing and that's taking KC nowhere.   Barry Switzer was the highest paid "fan" during the Cowboys last superbowl, but he simply benefited by being in the right place at the right time.  Surrounded by JJ assistants and great players.  Haley benefited by having a talented OC calling the plays.  Haley is not head coaching material.

Two thoughts:
1.) I would question the ability of anyone to clearly understand what Weis said while at a pizza parlor, especially if he said it after his pizza was ready.
2.) I'll bet McDaniel's phone isn't ringing to see if he's available to interview for the job.
