Notre Dame And Charlie Weis: No Way (Buy) Out?

Charlie Weis is in trouble again. His Notre Dame team lost to a horrendous Syracuse team this past weekend at home, and after his team’s very likely loss to USC this weekend, his winning percentage (he’s won 28 of 48 games) will be eerily similar to his two predecessors when they were canned.

But Charlie Weis, my friends, will probably survive another year because of his buyout. And, perhaps more importantly, because of the state of the economy. (As an aside, Notre Dame’s $7 billion endowment, like most investments, got slammed from its investments in real estate and commodities.)
