SHARE Report: Irish can Weis; Hiring process back in 2004 was a joke

Add Charlie Weis to the list of available possible offensive coordinators.

The New York Daily News has reported that Notre Dame has taken care of the fully expected and canned Charlie Weis.

It was a forgettable era for the university going all the way back to the sham of a hiring process used to bring Weis in. The school asked ex-Bears defensive coordinator Greg Blache to come speak with them about the position. Blache said he wasn’t interested. The school called back. Blache said he wasn’t interested. Finally, school officials played on his loyalty as an alum and he agreed to meet with them provided it remained private.

Then, unscrupulous school officials leaked the fact that they had met with Blache to media, making it known the Irish had interviewed a minority coaching candidate after firing Tyrone Willingham, an African-American.

“Interviews are like kisses,” Blache told the Sun-Times at the time. “Gentlemen don’t kiss and tell.”

Maybe Notre Dame can be a little more straightforward in its efforts to replace Weis.
