Charlie Weis roared into the football program at Notre Dame but the roar is gone after five years and leaving the Fighting Irish with its longest title drought in school history.
Charlie Weis (pictured) arrived at Notre Dame flashing Super Bowls rings and talking about outscheming opponents. He leaves one of college football’s most prestigious programs without even matching the record of the two men who were fired before him.
Assistant head coach Rob Ianello will step in for Weis until a new coach is hired.
The Irish have a 6-6 record and are eligible to play in a bowl game but will the arrogant and once proud Irish agree to “stoop” to play in a minor bowl?
What’s next for Weis? Don’t be surprised if he ends up as offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. An offensive coach in the NFL is what Charlie was good at.
