WNDU and Irish Eyes website are reporting tonight that Charlie Weis will return next year. (Links through The Big Lead)
We didn’t want to alarm the Wolfpack faithful when we floated this entry earlier in the day; but, as with much of what we report here there was a lot more going on behind the scenes than we were at liberty to share.
SFN has heard rumors from multiple sources that Notre Dame officials used the last few days to gauge the potential interest of a short list of coaches before making any decisions regarding Weis.
As we indicated today, Tom O’Brien was one of the coaches on that list. In addition to TOB, we have reason to believe that the Irish may have used surrogates to float correspondences by Florida’s Urban Meyer, Cincinnati’s Brian Kelly, East Carolina’s Skip Holtz and a fifth potential target that we have not yet been able to identify but may have had strong NFL ties.
If WNDU and Irish Eyes are correct, this will now become a non-story.
