    Docs: Notre Dame finishes its $18 million buyout payment to Charlie Weis

    Weis has made $18 million from Notre Dame since being fired

    Charlie Weis received his final payment from Notre Dame, completing one of the most notable buyouts in recent college football history. The total bill extends beyond what some coaches have made or will make in their entire career: $18,967,960.

    Weis received over $6.6 million from Notre Dame when he was fired in 2009, and he has continued to receive about $2.05 million each subsequent year, according to the Indianapolis Star. The news comes with the release of Notre Dame's federal tax return for the 2015 year, when the final installment of that payout ($2,054,742) was made.

    Entire article:

    As Yogi is credited with saying: "It's not over until it is over". Well, ND paying off Weis is now finally over.

    2009. What a time to get a lump sum $6.6m payment! If his finance guy has been investing this he's gotta be near $60m now.

    martinss01 blissfully stupid

    its my understanding that they actually tried to kill him repeatedly with a tire iron. sadly their efforts were thwarted time and time again by excess skull fat rendering their attempts at physical violence completely ineffective.

    Why is Kansas football still so awful? Charlie's decided schematic advantage(tm) when it came to crootin' ...


    The number that stands out most is 38. That’s how many returning scholarship players Beaty inherited when he started at Kansas in 2015.

    During that first offseason, 10 scholarship players left the program. Several players took medical retirements. Running back Corey Avery and receiver Rodriguez Coleman were dismissed. Receiver Nigel King went pro, and safety Isaiah Johnson went to South Carolina as a graduate transfer. Beaty’s first Kansas team ended up having as many newcomers as returning players.

    “It was a surprise,” Beaty said. “We were told that it was a little bit different than that.”

    Weis had tried to fix the Jayhawks quickly with too many junior college transfers, and his plan imploded. He took over in 2012, dismissed more than 20 players from the program for a variety of reasons and replaced them primarily with transfers. This was reckless, short-term thinking.

    In the recruiting classes of 2012 and 2013, Weis and his staff brought in a combined 27 junior college transfers. Only two were academic qualifiers coming out of high school. Fourteen did not graduate, and 10 — including touted signees Marquel Combs, Chris Martin and Kevin Short — never saw the field. And then, by the end of 2014, they were all gone. So was Weis. Going into 2015, only 12 of Weis’ first 56 signees were still on the roster.

    Former Kansas defensive end Ben Goodman played through the entire Weis era. He could tell when all those two-year players were failing to pan out that the program was about to be in trouble.

    “I guess he was trying to go the Bill Snyder way, which was understandable,” Goodman said, referring to the longtime Kansas State coach. “Bill was always winning. But Charlie didn’t have the formula. He had bits and pieces of the formula of what he thought was going to work. And also, honestly, junior college players are not always ready like you think they are. Charlie wanted to win now and prove himself and prove he could win in college football. But it just didn’t work out like that at all.”

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Charlie Weis is the gift that keeps giving. Or is he the gift you keep paying? Man, I still remember that fat tub of shit on 60 Minutes when asked about playing a coach with a National Championship ring in his first bowl game waving that hand full of Super Bowl rings and saying, "I think my rings are better than his rings."

    He definitely should go down as the worst college football coach of all time. His agent, however, should definitely make the agent hall of fame.
