The firing of Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis obviously affects many in the Irish community, players, administration and fans.
It also has a direct effect with two current and two possible Notre Dame players with Fort Wayne ties.
Sophomore John Goodman and freshman Tyler Eifert are Bishop Dwenger graduates and on the current Irish roster.
But it will also be interesting to see how Weis' firing and whoever ND officials select as the new coach will affect the recruiting of current Dwenger juniors Remound Wright and Tony Springmann.
When I interviewed both earlier this year, they each said Notre Dame was on their short list and have been up to the South Bend campus for visits.
