Notre Dame extends Weis through 2015
SOUTH BEND, Indiana -- It took Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis only
seven games to earn a new contract.
Notre Dame has signed Weis to a new 10-year deal, the school announced
Weis originally had signed a six-year contract through the 2010 season when
he was hired last December. This new deal takes effect next season and runs
"Since the first day I arrived at Notre Dame as head football coach, one of
my primary goals was to be able to see this job through to the time my son,
Charlie, would graduate from the University of Notre Dame and to stay in
this position until I retire," Weis said. "By restructuring this contract,
adding an additional five years, this allows me to accomplish that goal."
Weis has led the Fighting Irish, who began the season unranked, to a 5-2
mark and the No. 9 ranking. Notre Dame also nearly upset top-ranked Southern
California three weeks ago before coming up just short, 34-31.
"In a very short period of time, Charlie has clearly and impressively
demonstrated the ability to take the Notre Dame program where we all want it
to go," Notre Dame athletic director Kevin White said.
"We're excited that Charlie wanted to extend his commitment to Notre Dame,
combined with the University's interest in furthering its relationship with
him. All of us are enthusiastic about what the future holds for Notre Dame
football with Charlie Weis as our head coach. We're confident that we've got
the best coach in America ensconced at his alma mater for the remainder of
