SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)
A person familiar with the decision says Notre Dame has fired coach Charlie Weis.
The move comes after a string of disappointing seasons that was capped by four agonizing losses, including the regular-season finale on Saturday night at Stanford.
The person confirmed the firing to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the official announcement had yet to be made.
The New York Daily News first reported the firing.
A brash offensive coordinator with the NFL champion New England Patriots when he was hired five years ago, Weis raised Irish expectations with back-to-back appearances in BCS bowl games in his first two seasons.
Since then, one of the nation's most storied football programs has gone 16-21.
