Charles Joseph "Charlie" Weis (born March 30, 1956 in Trenton, New Jersey) is an American football coach. He currently serves as offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. For five years, from December 2004 through 2009, he was the head football coach at the University of Notre Dame. From 1997 to 1999, he was an NFL offensive coordinator for the New York Jets, and later for the New England Patriots.

After graduating from Notre Dame in 1978 Weis began his coaching career in 1979 at Boonton High School in New Jersey. He spent the next five seasons at Morristown High School in New Jersey as a football assistant. In 1985, he was hired by head coach Joe Morrison at the University of South Carolina, where he served four seasons on the Gamecock staff before returning to New Jersey as the head coach at Franklin High School in 1989. That year, he directed Franklin Township to the New Jersey state championship while also assisting in the New York Giants' pro personnel department.

Weis launched his professional coaching career in 1990 when he was named offensive assistant and assistant special teams coach under Giants head coach Bill Parcells. The Giants went on to win Super Bowl XXV at the end of that season, beating the Buffalo Bills by a score of 20–19. After Ray Handley took over as head coach in 1991, Weis stayed on as the running back coach for two seasons, then began a four-year stint with the New England Patriots. For the first two years, Weis served as the tight end coach (1993–94).
