As the “what the hell does this have to do with the NFL?” crowd prepares to piss and/or moan, allow us to provide a link from John Taylor of CFT regarding the first possible candidate for the Notre Dame job, which is expected to be open before tonight’s rerun of the Gerard Butler episode of SNL concludes.
It’s relevant to pro football because it’s further evidence that current (until tonight’s rerun of the Gerard Butler episode of SNL concludes) Irish coach will be back on the market, soon.
And with neither the Patriots nor the Chiefs currently having an offensive coordinator, we wouldn’t be shocked if either or both of them try to make an immediate play for Charlie Weis. Really, what better way to remedy the blow to the ego resulting from being unwanted than to a go promptly to a place where Weis is wanted?
We think it’s no accident that Pats coach Bill Belichick left the position of offensive coordinator vacant after Josh McDaniels headed to Denver, and the best way for Weis to stick it to the powers-that-be in South Bend would be to get right back on the horse (he’d probably need a boost) and pursue a fourth Super Bowl ring.
UPDATE: Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick has “emphatically denied” that anyone would be interviewing for the job that Weis still holds on Sunday.
