SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Charlie Weis will return for a fifth season at Notre Dame despite another disappointing year, several media outlets reported Tuesday night.
WNDU-TV in South Bend, The South Bend Tribune and several other media outlets, citing anonymous sources, reported Weis will be back next year.
Athletic director Jack Swarbrick did not respond to repeated phone messages and e-mails from The Associated Press on Tuesday night. University spokesman John Heisler declined to address the reports.
``When we have something to say and it's the appropriate time to say it, we'll say it,'' he said.
Swarbrick had said after the Irish lost 38-3 to USC on Saturday that he would evaluate Weis' performance and planned to meet with the coach on Dec. 8. Swarbrick was on the West Coast raising money and Weis was recruiting, Heisler said.
the Orange were 2-8, marking the first loss ever by Notre Dame to an eight-loss team.
Weis has led the team to back-to-back disappointing seasons of 3-9 and 6-6, with the 15 losses the most ever by the Irish in a two-year span. The Irish earned BCS berths in his first two seasons, going to the Fiesta and Sugar bowls.
Weis is 28-21 in four years as Irish coach, a .571 winning percentage. That's slightly worse than his two predecessors, Tyrone Willingham and Bob Davie.
