It’s no secret that Notre Dame will be firing head coach Charlie Weis.
Now, it’s no secret that he’ll have multiple options at the NFL level.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Weis is telling people that he has been contacted by multiple NFL teams, presumably to serve in the position of offensive coordinator.
Schefter seems to think that Weis will be back in the NFL by next year. We still aren’t ready to rule out Weis re-joining the Patriots for the stretch run.
As we’ve previously said, Weis can sit at home and feel sorry for himself. Or he can keep his sleeves rolled up and start the process of washing the bad taste out of this mouth.
The most obvious candidates are the Chiefs and the Patriots. Browns coach Eric Mangini might also be interested in hiring Weis to run the Cleveland offense, in the hopes of getting the most out of former Weis pupil Brady Quinn and, more importantly, securing for Mangini another year at the helm of the hapless Browns.
