To reiterate, it’s not that the schools resist spending money…

Case in point:

As has been in the case in recent years, the document showed that former football head coach Charlie Weis received more money from the school in 2012 than did any current athletics employee. Weis again received nearly $2.1 million as part of an ongoing separation agreement…

Kelly was listed with nearly $1.5 million in total pay…

So, yes, Charlie Weis was paid better than a half-million dollars more than the guy who got Notre Dame into the national title game for the first time in decades.  That 2005 loss to Southern Cal will go down as the most valuable defeat in Irish history.

These guys are morons.

    Yeah, but he worked with Tom Brady, so there’s that.

    The guys that orchestrated his contract were different than the ones looking into the failed tummy tuck.

    I believe Colin Cowherd said this a year or so ago, but I could be mistaken. He said roughly that, according to his NFL/CFB sources, Charlie Weiss should give 95% of everything he’s earned since leaving the Pats for ND to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. That pretty much says it all.

    This is the same guy who used to tell ND recruits that they would have a “decided schematic advantage” (over other teams) if they signed with ND. Roy Munson, I mean Dana Holgorsen, got a little dig in on Weiss when they played in ’12. He said before the game that they would be at a decided schematic disadvantage, but hoped they could pull out the win anyway.

    Not surprisingly, WVU won with ease, by something like 50 points.

      Speaking of Buffalo Bill, I understand that this guy could be his secret weapon in his upcoming war on Nick

    That 500K is a food allowance that Chuck negotiated and Kelly doesn’t need.
