How much did it cost Notre Dame to get rid of Charlie Weis?
Start with $6,638,403. And keep counting until December 2015.
Notre Dame made an initial "termination payment" to Weis of more than $6.6 million and will continue to cut smaller checks to its former football coach for the foreseeable future, according to federal tax documents obtained by the Tribune on Thursday.
Weis' apparent buyout is revealed on the Form 990 Notre Dame must submit to the Internal Revenue Service. It was made available to the Tribune upon request. Weis' total severance pay which was subject to debate as his tenure drew to a close won't be fully clear for years, though.

May Notre Dame and the people who invited Obambi suffer as much as the football program at that school.
They offered Charlie an insane contract and smartest thing he did at Notre Dame was to sign it.
A little easier to win when you had that Michigan quarterback at New England, wasn’t it Charlie?? And rather tough when Notre Dame only allows you to recruit players who can read and write!
Just yesterday it was revealed that Jenkins has put a long-time abortion supporter on the Board of Governors of Notre Dame. I guess he wants to be sure he has allies who will back him up.
The guy is both evil and stupid. I guess being evil tends to make you stupid, since it involves a refusal to recognize reality.
That means less money that UF has to pay him.

in the AJC today:
Those responsible for hiring Weiss should be ... perhaps ... excommunicated.
No different than Spurrier coaching South Carolina, it still hurts to see him on the opposite sideline, especially last year’s game.
Wow! That’s like $19,000/lb.
Just raise tuition.
Good choice. Hell, they could have hired a recent grad for $100,000 and saved themselves a lot of trouble. You think he would have done worse than Charlie????????????? Doubt it.
