Ralph Wilson Stadium - He was just fired at Notre Dame, after five years. Now, sources tell News 4 Sports that Charlie Weis has been contacted by the Buffalo Bills, to see if he's interested in becoming head coach.

Sources tell us the Bills made a back-channel approach to Weis in recent weeks to see if he's interested in the job. And the sources say Weis is interested. So far, it's not believed that the two sides have had a formal discussion about the Bills coaching job.

Weis was fired at Notre Dame after five years and a disappointing 35-27 record. His Fighting Irish finished 6-6 in 2009 , ending a three-year run that saw them win 16-games and lose 21.

Before his tenure at Notre Dame, Weis spent five years as Offensive Coordinator for the New England Patriots. He served on the staffs of Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells in the NFL.
