Former Irish QB Quinn backs embattled Weis

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn says Notre Dame would be making a mistake if it fires coach Charlie Weis.

Quinn, who played two seasons for Weis with the Fighting Irish, believes it would be a "horrible decision" if the school makes a coaching change. Notre Dame is 6-5 heading into its regular-season finale at Stanford. Weis is 35-26 in five seasons at his alma mater.

Quinn said there have been a "lot of circumstances" that have led to Notre Dame's national slide.
