SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - There's a billboard facing the Notre Dame campus with a not-so-subtle reminder to coach Charlie Weis.
It reads: "Best wishes to Charlie Weis in the fifth year of his college coaching internship." The ad is signed by "Linebacker Alumni," a reference to a bar near the base of the billboard.
Weis said Tuesday he had not yet seen the billboard, which is about a half-mile from his office, but had been told about it. He said he got a chuckle out of it. He said he was happy with everything in the message except the last word.
Asked about being on the hot seat, Weis replied: "I'm the head coach at Notre Dame. Welcome to my world."
