Robert Weiner has change of heart, will stay at Plant HS

Tampa, FL-- Less than 48 hours after accepting the offer of Wide Receivers coach at USF, Robert Weiner changed his mind and decided to stay at Plant HS.

"If you asked 100 high school coaches, probably 100 would say, if they were offered the same position I was offered, they would run with it," Weiner told an afternoon news conference at the Plant HS Fieldhouse.  "With the chance of advancement, and maybe with the dream of being a college head coach one day.  Although it was intrigueing to me, it's never been my dream... I'm not wired that way."
