Weis invited to the White House

After Notre Dame’s season-ending win against Stanford, head coach Charlie Weis stayed in California to do a little recruiting, but then Weis himself was recruited for a pretty important team.

President Bush and First Lady Laura invited Charlie and his wife, Maura, to a holiday party.

It was there the President also invited the Irish head coach to serve on the President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities. Twenty-one citizen members and 13 ex-officio members are appointed by the President for this committee.

Weis’ 11-year-old daughter, Hannah, has global developmental delays on the autism spectrum. While Weis has not officially been named to the committee, he said on Monday that “it’s moving in that direction.”
