PITTSBURGH ó Pittsburgh fired football coach Mike Haywood on Saturday, saying he could not continue in the job he held for only 21/2 weeks because of his arrest on a domestic violence charge.
Haywood was released Saturday from St. Joseph County Jail in Indiana on $1,000 cash bond, said an officer at the jail who declined to give her name, after the charge was upgraded from a misdemeanor to felony domestic battery in the presence of a minor.
Within hours of Haywoodís afternoon release, Pittsburgh put out a statement from Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg, saying Haywood had been dismissed, ěeffective immediately,î and the school was reopening its search.
WEIS TO GATORS
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ó Former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis is leaving the NFL to become Florida’s offensive coordinator.
According to a person familiar with the decision, a formal announcement will come today.
Weis, hired at Notre Dame five years ago when Urban Meyer turned the Irish down to come to Gainesville, is currently the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City leads the NFL in rushing and ranks ninth in total offense.
The Chiefs are headed to the playoffs, and Weis will remain with them throughout the postseason. Weis won’t go on the road recruiting at least for a week, but he will be to call recruits.
Weis won three Super Bowl rings in New England and then spent five years at Notre Dame.
