Charlie Weis’ buyout

| Wednesday, December 2, 2009

I understand that Charlie Weis is getting paid millions of dollars — possibly as much as $18 million — for not doing his job. Meanwhile, TAs like me get paid less than one-tenth of one percent of that amount, and we show up and do ours in the classroom every week. Does Notre Dame really mean to imply that firing Coach Weis is a thousand times more valuable to the University’s mission than the yearly contribution of each individual TA? In the words of GOB Bluth: come on!
