Weis Out At Notre Dame

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Nov 30, 2009 8:00PM

Multiple media outlets are reporting this afternoon that Charlie Weis is no longer the head football coach at Notre Dame following a disappointing 6-6 season at the school. The first two seasons under Weis were successes as Notre Dame went 9-3 in 2005 and 10-3 in 2006 and landed in BCS bowls both years but the team has been 16-21 over the last three years and is winless against ranked opponents in that same time period. Overall, Notre Dame was 35-27 under Weis, 1-2 in bowl games (those two BCS bowls were losses). Players are slated to vote at a team meeting today whether or not to accept an expected bowl game invitation after which any decision about an interim coach will be made.
