Notre Dame AD: Program going in right direction under Weis

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Charlie Weis has the backing of his boss, who insists Notre Dame football is headed in the right direction despite the team’s inability to beat its best opponents.

“He’s our head coach and I look forward to him being the head coach for a long time,” athletic director Jack Swarbrick said Wednesday.
Notre Dame fan Web sites have been deluged with people posting messages calling for Weis’ firing, and newspaper columnists have been questioning whether he is capable of making the Fighting Irish national title contenders again.
