Notre Dame keeps Coach Charlie Weis

For at least one more year. From AP-

Charlie Weis will return for a fifth year as Notre Dame’s football coach despite posting his second straight disappointing season.

“Though this past season fell short of the expectations that all of us have for our football program, I am confident that Charlie has a strong foundation in place for future success and that the best course of action is to move forward under his leadership,” athletic director Jack Swarbrick said in a statement released by the university Wednesday.

Weis has seven years left on a 10-year contract signed midway through his first season, but some fans had been clamoring for his firing after the Irish got off to a 4-1 start this season and finished 6-6.

Weis has an expensive 10-year contract. I suspect Weis will be around for at least 1 or 2 more years.
