Charlie Weis Will Be Back in South Bend

By  | 

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- After weeks of being lit up in print and on the airwaves during a second straight disappointing season, Charlie Weis isn't going anywhere. Notre Dame announced today that the former New England Patriots offensive coordinator will be back for a fifth season with the Fighting Irish.
It gives Weis another shot at trying to return Notre Dame to prominence after posting back-to-back seasons of 3-9 and 6-6. The 15 losses are the most by Notre Dame in a two-year span.
Weis has produced a 28-21 record in four years. His .571 winning percentage is slightly worse than his two predecessors, Tyrone Willingham and Bob Davie.
Weis has seven years left on a 10-year contract signed midway through his first season in South Bend.
The decision to keep Weis was first reported by several media outlets last night.
