comes this juicy nugget:
It will be some time before anyone accurately can assess Charlie Weis’ complete severance package from Notre Dame. But his compensation for at least one fiscal year provides some clarity in the mystery surrounding the ex-Irish football coach’s income.
Weis earned $2,927,090 from July 2008 to June 2009, according to federal tax documents the Tribune obtained Wednesday.
Whether that money Notre Dame reported on its Form 990 tax return for that fiscal year represents the full scope of the ex-Irish football coach’s income is unclear.
But that’s not the best part. Here’s the punchline:
And ex-football coach Ty Willingham remained on the university payroll, so to speak, for yet one more year, earning $650,000 from Notre Dame — $910 more than Weis was paid, officially, by the school. [Emphasis added.]
Maybe he had a better year.
