Information is beginning to trickle out on the inevitable. Sources close to the program say that Weis’ tenure is over after a record of 35-27.
Charlie Weis is out as Notre Dame head football coach, a source close to the program told the Daily News.
AD Jack Swarbrick has decided to make a change after Weis finished the season with a 6-6 record and four straight losses to Navy, Pitt, Connecticut and Stanford.
There has been speculation that Weis will return to the NFL and according to him at least, that may indeed happen.
He has told friends in South Bend he has at least six offers from NFL teams to become their offensive coordinator.
So now that this is out of the way, we have the entire bowl season to throw together unverified rumors about who his successor will be. It shall be a good time.
