Chris Badger(6-foot-1, 190-pounds) is disappointed that he won't have a chance to play for Charlie Weis, but he is still planning on sticking with his commitment to Notre Dame.
"I think it's a tough situation with coach Weis being gone," Badger said. "He's a great guy and obviously he's given a lot to the university. He's really hard working. It's sad to see. They obviously had high expectations for the year, but they didn't live up to them. Right now it's kind of wait and see who they hire.
"I think the biggest thing right now is seeing who they hire and building relationship with them the best that I can. I'm still going to Notre Dame. The biggest thing is to fit in with the new coaches and see what happens and then go from there."
Although the fate of Charlie Weis has been decided, the Notre Dame assistants are still waiting to see if they will be retained.
"I talked to coach Hart and got an email from coach Brown," Badger said. "Coach Hart told me that he definitely wanted to. He's going to try and talk to the new coach and hope that they think he's a good enough coach and they'll want to keep him around. He's such a great guy and he's one of the reasons that I committed to Notre Dame."
