If you read Jack Swarbrick’s comments in the statement released by Notre Dame today, it certainly seems like some changes may be coming to the Notre Dmae coaching staff – even if those changes do not include a switch at the head coaching position.
Here’s the part that has people thinking changes are coming.
“He (Weis), I and the others involved in leading our football program are committed to doing everything necessary to ensure a successful 2009 season. We are examining every aspect of the program and will make changes wherever we think they are needed.”
Last year Weis said he wouldn’t make any scapegoats and would take all of the blame for the 2007 season. That very likely won’t be the case this year because Weis won’t want to find himself in this same position next year.
Some coaches may leave the staff for promotions elsewhere as well. Corwin Brown (Eastern Michigan), Rob Ianello (Syracuse), and Mike Haywood (Washington) have all been linked to possible head coaching jobs already this year.
It’s still going to be an interesting couple of weeks.
