Charlie Weis Press Conference Transcript (February 13)

Feb. 13, 2009

THE MODERATOR: Good morning, everyone. Happy Friday the 13th. Coach Weis will start with some opening comments about a number of things, then we'll take some questions from the media. Coach Weis.

COACH WEIS: First of all, I'm in a good mood after that nail biting victory by our basketball team last night. I was very happy for Coach Brey, our hoops team. That was an impressive performance. Lifted my spirits. 


Charlie Weis will serve as his own offensive coordinator and will call plays for Notre Dame next season. Although not unexpected, that was the first bit of news to come out of the first interview session with the Irish coach since Signing Day. 

Does that mean he will call plays from the coaching booth, as he did during Notre Dame's 49-21 win over Hawaii, or from the sideline, as he has done throughout his career?

"My wife asked me that, as well," Weis said, laughing. "That's no kidding. She asked me the same question.

"I can tell you that it's a subject we've addressed as a staff. Although I'd say it's definitely on the lower end of fifty-fifty, it's not something that's a five-percent consideration by us at this point. ... I can honestly tell you it's not a no. ... My wife will be very happy that you asked me that question."
