Weis sits down with Brown

Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis didn't have much to say about assistant coach Corwin Brown's rant against Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo.

Brown, who is the defensive backs coach along with being an associate head coach and co-defensive coordinator, railed against Niumatalolo saying the Midshipmen had success on offense in last weekend's win because they studied what the Irish did last season to stop them.

Weis said he was told about what Brown said by director of football media relations Brian Hardin.

"I had a chat with him this morning, and we moved on to Pittsburgh," Weis said. "I had a reaction. I talked to him this morning."

Weis wouldn't go so far to say it's a positive for a coach to show that kind of passion and frustration after a tough loss, but he said Brown's tirade was another sign of people in the program taking responsibility for their actions.

"Our players and coaches have done a good job of accepting accountability this week," Weis said. "I think you found players, and now you found coaches, who are expressing accountability to their actions. … I think you are on the right track if everyone is accepting their share of the responsibility."
