    Tax forms reveal Weis’ Notre Dame buyout


    Register to remove this advertisement
    According to an article that ran in the Chicago Tribune earlier this week, Weis has received nearly $8.7 million dollars from Notre Dame since being fired in 2009, and is in line to continue receiving compensation through 2015. Weis’ buyout from Notre Dame could total as much as $19 million by then.

    Weis’ compensation included an initial amount of more than $6.6 million after his firing and payments totaling a little more than $2 million from July 2010 through June 2011.

    The Tribune gained access to the financial numbers through a request for Form 990 that Notre Dame was required to submit to the Internal Revenue Service.

    Weis, who spent one season as the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs and another as the offensive coordinator at Florida, was hired by KU in December 2011 at a salary of $2.5 million per year, plus incentives, for five years.

    It wouldn't be Notre Dame if we didn't have more than 1 coach on the payroll at a time.

    To quote Will Munny, "Deserve's got nothin' to do with it"

    The guy signed a contract, put together a string of good games, damn near beat USC and parlayed that into an extension. The fact that Kevin White was stupid enough to extend him for 10 years before he even finished a season as HC is more of a reflection on White's stupidity than it is on Weis' worthiness.

    And any coach who gets fired doesn't deserve any buyout. They got fired.

    Blame lawyers and AD's.
