Bye, Charlie

Letter to the Editor | Monday, November 24, 2008

Dear Charlie,I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your coaching services the past four years. I really appreciate you driving this program into the ground, culminating in a loss to one of the worst teams in college football. I know for a fact that we are not as bad as you have made us. Notre Dame has a winning tradition, and you have put that tradition in jeopardy. It would be a huge mistake for the university to bring you back for another year. I personally am willing to help pay out the rest of your contract, although I regrettably do not have $20 million plus at my disposal. From a 3-9 season including a loss to Navy, to getting blown out in any meaningful game, to an utterly shocking loss to Syracuse, you have turned this program into a laughing stock. Please find another job. Peace out.
