SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Charlie Weis will return for a fifth season as Notre Dame's football coach despite posting his second straight disappointing season.

A person familiar with the decision says the university will make the official announcement later Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the information had not been authorized for release.

Weis has seven years left on a 10-year contract signed midway through his first season. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said following Notre Dame's
38-3 loss to USC on Saturday that he would evaluate Weis' performance. Both men were out of town Wednesday.

The decision to keep Weis was first reported by several media outlets Tuesday night.
