NOTRE DAME (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Notre Dame football season is officially over. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick has announced the school has decided against going to a bowl game with a 6-6 record, citing "unique circumstances" surrounding the program.

Earlier this week, Swarbrick fired Charlie Weis as coach after
five seasons.

Quarterback Jimmy Clausen and wide receiver Golden Tate shared the 2009 most valuable player award, presented by the Notre Dame Monogram Club at the 89th Notre Dame Football Banquet Friday night. The duo was selected in a vote by the 2009 Fighting Irish football team.
