It was inevitable that Charlie Weis would have to deal with speculation that he could still pursue his dream to be an NFL head coach.
Forget about it. Two sources very familiar with Weis' state of mind -- state of heart, too -- say there is "zero" chance Weis will be tempted to leave Notre Dame after just one year on the job.
It won't necessarily put an end to the talk. Weis has a buyout clause of a fairly paltry $1.5 million. Somebody in the NFL will no doubt call his agent, Bob Lamonte, to test the waters. Maybe more than one somebody.
Chris Mortensen addresses NFL teams' anticipated pursuit of Charlie Weis after the season and the Saints' future.
