We all should have Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis’ financial people negotiating contracts for us.
Weis has been paid $7.3 million by Notre Dame since he was fired in 2009, including a $6.6 million lump sum when he was let go, according to a story in the Chicago Tribune on Friday. He will continue to receive payments from Notre Dame through Dec. 2015, when his 10-year contract was supposed to end.
Don’t know what the Kansas City Chiefs paid him last year, but it was at least equal to most offensive coordinators in the NFL.
Weis signed a three-year deal worth $2.495 million earlier this year with UF. He will earn $765,000 this year, then $865,000 the next two years.
The UF coach will be busy this weekend hosting the Hannah & Friends Celebrity Golf Classic on Saturday in Charleston, S.C., to benefit the Hannah & Friends Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides quality of life grants to families across the country that care for children and adults with special needs.
The foundation was created in honor of the Weis’ daughter, Hannah, who suffers from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome, a disorder that affects the parts of the brain that control comprehension and speech.
