ESPN’s charisma-deficient Chris Mortensen is reporting that New England Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis has accepted Notre Dame’s offer of a 6 year contract to become the school’s head football coach.

Weis, perhaps the only white man in the United States to have not turned the job down this past week (well, other than George O’Leary or Gerry Faust), is expected to stay with the Patriots through however far they progress in the playoffs.
