Weis To Keep Calling Plays

Charlie Weis said during his Tuesday conference call that he will continue to call pays for the rest of the regular season, beginning with Saturday’s game against Syracuse in Notre Dame Stadium.

Weis had delegated those responsibilities to offensive coordinator Mike Haywood during the offseason but resumed game-planning and play-calling duties when Haywood flew to Houston last week to attend the funeral of his female cousin. Weis said Haywood would miss additional practices for personal reasons this week. Haywood’s absence, coupled with a short week of preparation leading up to a season-ending, Thanksgiving weekend showdown with USC on Sept. 29, convinced Weis to keep calling plays until the end of the regular season.Weis also said cornerback Terrail Lambert was “doubtful” for this week but “probable” for the USC game. Lambert turned his ankle in practice before the Navy game.I will post the press conference transcript ASAP.
