SOUTH BEND — The changes Notre Dame head football coach Charlie Weis promised in vague terms after a 7-6 season have begun to take shape.Along with the Mike Haywood to Miami news we haven't really covered yet, this will give ND two assistant coach openings. Much more to come on this soon.
Defensive line coach Jappy Oliver was fired Thursday after four seasons under Weis, two sources close to the team have confirmed.
It seems ND put out an official statement and the SBT followed their lead, changing "fired" to "resigned".
Defensive line coach Jappy Oliver is out after four seasons under Weis, Notre Dame football spokesman Brian Hardin confirmed Thursday. Hardin said Oliver “resigned to pursue other career opportunities.”The end result is the same, but it puts a softer spin on the separation. No word yet on possible replacements.
