    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    Its retarded how many would speculate that Weis would leave for the NFL. He came from the highest point, coaching a 3-time champion in the Patriots, why the hell would he leave??? Believe me, he could get a HC job in the NFL if he wanted, he went to him alma mater for a reason, not to bolt to where hes already been.

  7. Man how quickly they forgot Willingham started off 8-0 in his first year, and then fell off.

    Looks like they rate the base contract value at 23.5 Million (that does not include peripheral income from TV shows, hawking weight loss products, stomach stapling outpatient surgery, and such like).
    No word on the buy-out clause and revisions to the same.

    Ty Willingham - starts 8-0 - fired after 3 years.

    Chubby Charlie - starts 5-2 - gets a 10-year deal. Having said that, I'd be happier if he were coaching the NY Giants.

    I guess it all depends on the USC game. Three 31-point losses vs. a battle that could have gone either way.

    Err - Why?

    His contract like most others in the game was serving at the pleasure of the institution. The only difference is that ND had histoirically allowed coaches to complete the original term of a contract - but now with TW they did not. Guess what, that makes ND just like any other college football program. Coach ain't cutting it and things are going from bad to worse, find a new head coach.

    Willingham's early success was all D, all Special teams and a heavy dose of lucky bounces, but little or no improvement on offense. It was also built heavilly on Davies' recruits, not Willingham's. Point of fact there were rumblings among the ND faithful concerning the drop-off in recruited talent that Willingham's first recruiting class seemed to offer. Tack on a poor second and third year showing, high margin losses to their chief rival, and there is little on which Willingham can hang his hat about his stay in South Bend.

    His treatment my not have been compared to that doled out to earlier coaches for the Irish. It is however fully in keeping with the risk / reward at the vast majority of other institutions throughout Div 1A.

    Even Lou Holtz said on ESPN that after his first 2 years he didnt get a long term contract and Holtz is a Domer icon.

    The Domers were backed into a corner on this. They had to do something because their recruits were reading all about the NFL teams that were going to go after CW this offseason

    He'll last 3 years, 4 if he beats USC at least once.

    Bingo. What I don't see, and perhaps I read through it, is the new buy out amount.

    IMO the biggest difference between Ty and Weiss is that Weiss is already proving his ability to recruit. Ty was never able to manage that process.
