Charlie Weis has gone 35-27 in his Notre Dame coaching career, a worse record than Ty Willingham or Bob Davie, although slightly better than Gerry Faust (not that Weis is likely to highlight that fact on his résumé.)
With Weis apparently on his way out of South Bend, reports are already circulating that he's a sure bet to land an offensive coordinator position in the NFL next season -- the same post he held with the Patriots.
Here's the deal: There isn't much evidence that Weis is necessarily any better at calling plays than he was coaching Notre Dame. In his five years as OC for the Patriots, the team ranked 22nd, 19th, 21st, 17th and seventh in the NFL in total yards. In the five years since his departure (including 2009), the Patriots have ranked seventh, 11th, first, fifth and second in total offensive yards. In other words, they ranked in the bottom half o the league in four of Weis' five seasons. While skeptics would point out that Weis never had the luxury of Randy Moss, it's fair to point out that Weis never had to coach an offense with Reche Caldwell as its No. 1 receiver.
Weis supporters would likely point to New England's three Super Bowl wins with Weis, and none since. Skeptics would counter that the Patriots were outgained in two of those Super Bowl wins.
The truth, as always, probably sits somewhere in between. Or having a good quarterback. Weis went 19-6 at Notre Dame with Brady Quinn, 16-21 without.
