Found December 12, 2011 on The Sports Bank:
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o has decided to hold off on the NFL money for now. The junior will return to South Bend for his senior season, Te’o announced Sunday night at the Lott IMPACT Trophy banquet. In midseason he tweeted “Playin for my bros and that’s it!!!!” And this was during the same week Brian Kelly made public comments segregating players he recruited from those recruited by Charlie Weis. So it was widely previously expected that Te’o was gone. The 6-2, 255-pound Hawaiian was a finalist for the Butkus Award and Lott Trophy in 2011 and earlier this week was named to the Walter Camp All-America second team. Te’o leads the Irish with 115 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and four and a half sacks. His 311 career tackles rank eighth in Notre Dame history. Paul M.

Weis adds two coaches to staff

At his introductory press conference Friday, Charlie Weis promised a quick resolution to the matter of hiring a coaching staff.

Charlie Weis hires Tim Grunhard as OL coach

In a move that should signal Frank Verducci is staying at Florida, Kansas coach Charlie Weis hired Tim Grunhard as his offensive line coach. The Gators brought in Verducci in January, and coach Will Muschamp said one of the main factors in the hiring was his prior experience with Weis. Weis and Verducci coached together at Notre Dame in 2009, when Verducci was the offensive line...

Muschamp: No timetable to replace Weis

In a season of transition, it seems fitting that Florida will cap head coach Will Muschamps first year with Muschamp searching for a new offensive coordinator. Charlie Weis departure on Thursday to become head coach at Kansas was a surprise, but Muschamp doesnt expect there to be any lingering effects on the field by the time Florida faces Ohio State on Jan. 2 in the Gator Bowl...

Back from NIU, Parmalee talks KU offer

New Kansas head coach Charlie Weis hasn't wasted any time getting to work on the recruiting front. And one of his first phone calls was to an athlete he's known for years, who just happens to be one of the most productive receivers in the Kansas City metro area – Roeland Park (KS) Bishop Miege star Tre Parmalee.

Charlie Weis gets $12.5 million contract at Kansas

(source feed provided no summary content for this entry)

“I’m not touching his coaches. That’s not the way friends do business.”

Translation from the original Weis:  “Florida had its worst season in over twenty years.  And Meyer’s already cherry picked his guys from the staff.  What head coach in his right mind would want the leftovers?” Although Coach Will says it’s all good because he’s already won the hired-away-coaches mythical national championship and the Gators will contend for it again...

Dieter picks up offer from Kansas

It would be difficult to find a wide receiver in the prep ranks more productive than Gehrig Dieter. Scratch that, it would be borderline impossible. And as Kansas head coach Charlie Weis has tracked the South Bend (IN) Washington high star throughout his career, it should come as no surprise an offer went out almost before he got settled in Lawrence.
