UPDATE: Firing is official. If the Irish play in a bowl game, ND receivers coach Rob Ianello will serve as acting head coach.
Rich Cimini and Dick Weiss of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS report:
Charlie Weis is out as Notre Dame head football coach, a source close to the program told the Daily News.
The report adds that if Notre Dame players vote to go to a bowl game, “it is unlikely Weis will coach the team in that game.“
Weis didn’t endear himself to the media on his way out, blowing off halftime and postgame interviews, along with cleaning out his desk before he traveled to ND’s last road game.
That gives us a little insight into the character of the man who crowed in his opening press conference to the media four years ago that, “6-5 isn’t good enough“.
The Irish this season? 6-6.
