Nice work if you can get it. Or even if you can’t.

You know the old Richard Pryor one-liner that “Cocaine is God’s way of telling you you have too much money”?

Charlie Weis is God’s way of telling schools the same thing.

***************************************************************************

UPDATE:  By the way, in 2013 Notre Dame paid Weis almost a million dollars more not to coach the team than it paid Brian Kelly to do that.

A decided schematic disadvantage

Don’t make promises you can’t keep, dude.

He wasn’t any better when you hired him, dude.

This is cold, Bernie.

It might have been more useful if you had expressed that sentiment to Boom, though.

Adios, Charlie. For now, anyway.

Is it hard to believe that Kansas axed Charlie Weis mid-season?

Not any harder than the decision to hire him in the first place.

I doubt he’s that upset.  He knows there’s another dumbass AD waiting around the corner to be dazzled by Super Bowl rings and talk of Tom Brady.

Besides, it’s not like he isn’t getting paid.

Decided schematic advantage is boring.

Bruce Feldman reports that Charlie Weis falls asleep in team meetings.  And, yes, that’s “meetings” as in plural.

Also, this.

I wonder which AD is dumb enough to sign him to a deal after Kansas cuts him loose.  Don’t forget those Super Bowl rings!

The return of the decided schematic advantage

After all these years, it turns out that it’s been Tom Brady holding back Charlie Weis.  Who knew?

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.
