The Notre Dame brass were so impressed with Weis off the bat, they offered him a 10-year contract extension halfway through his first year at the helm. And though he led the Irish to an impressive 9-3 regular-season, his inaugural season ended on a sour note with a 34-20 loss to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. While the loss didn't overshadow a successful debut season, it did extend Notre Dame's postseason losing streak to eight.
