SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick says he looks forward to Charlie Weis being the head football coach for the Fighting Irish for a long time.
Swarbrick says he's aware that some people are unhappy with the job Weis is doing with the Irish, who have lost three of four games to fall to 5-4. But he says he believes the program is headed in the right direction under Weis.
Swarbrick says the Irish are significantly better than last year's 3-9 team, and he expects next year's team to be even better. Weis is in his fourth season at Notre Dame, and third year of a 10-year contract.
