The University of Notre Dame locked up head coach Charlie Weis through 2015.
This is great news for Irish Faithful the nation over. Weis may only be 7 games in to his career as a head coach, but the Irish are 5-2, with a big win over rival Michigan, and one of those losses coming in the final seconds... quite literally... against rival and undisputed national #1 USC. The Irish are 9th in the Coaches' and Harris polls and 8th in the AP poll, the highest-ranked 2-loss team in the nation, and are currently flirting with an at-large BCS bowl berth (14th on the BCS poll).
Welcome back to prominence, Notre Dame. We missed you.
