I just love the fact the ND's coach is best buddies with, and can pick the brain of, the best coach in all of football. The following blurb is in today's Boston Herald:

Weis a camp counselor

It apparently didn't take former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis very long to get homesick.

With the summer practice schedule yet to get under way at Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish coach was a visitor at Patriots camp for the second straight day yesterday.

Unlike Sunday, when he viewed practice from the sidelines, Weis walked out to the session with his former boss, Bill Belichick, and then took in the action from the middle of the two practice fields, chatting with former colleagues along the way.

Belichick even called the full team over to Weis – who was in the area tending to other business – prior to practice. Weis said a few words, and when he was done the players cheered.

"He just told us he was appreciative of all the things we did for him, and he thanked us for helping him get a (head coaching) job,'' said wide receiver Troy Brown. "And there weren't even any (swear words). That was different.''
