HONOLULU -- Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis says the Fighting Irish program was offended by derogatory comments made by Hawaii coach Greg McMackin but has accepted his apology and will move on.

McMackin apologizes for remark

Watson The published comments from McMackin's initial news conference and then his string of apologies were like a snowball running out of control, writes ESPN.com's Graham Watson Blog.

Weis on Friday said McMackin "demonstrated poor judgment" by using a slur usually targeted at gays to describe Notre Dame's chant before last year's Hawaii Bowl.

McMackin has repeatedly apologized for the comments made during a media briefing Thursday at the Western Athletic Conference football preview in Salt Lake City.

The second-year Warriors coach was scheduled to meet with school officials Friday to discuss the incident. He could be reprimanded by the school or the WAC.
