And the Notre Dame coaching whirlwind continues to gain momentum.
Reports continue to fly out of South Bend about afternoon meetings happening today between Charlie Weis, and the team and athletic director Jack Swarbrick also planning on meeting with the assistants and players.
One of the big topics will be whether the Irish would accept a bowl invite. Players have scheduled a meeting today, and the Associated Press reported they will vote on playing in a bowl game.
Players were mum about a desire to play in a bowl going into the home finale against Connecticut and weren't available for interviews leading into the game against Stanford.
Michael Floyd and Robert Hughes told IrishIllustrated.com they would want to play in a bowl, but they would want Weis to be the coach.
Swarbrick has said he would take the players' feelings into consideration about going to a bowl.
The last time Notre Dame was bowl-eligible but didn't go was after the 1996 season. The Irish went 8-3 that year in Lou Holtz's final season.
AP is reporting that Weis is not in his office, but there has been no word on whether he has been fired.
ESPN.com is reporting that Weis has told people in South Bend that he has been contacted by about six NFL teams about an offensive coordinator position next season.
