Willingham resigns

Ty Willingham resigned as Washington's football coach yesterday, but will continue to coach the team for the remainder of the season.

So, another new start with another new coach. The Seattle Times' thoughts on possible replacements here. I think the job is more attractive than it might seem at first blush. UW regularly turns out 60,000+ fans this year for a team with no wins. Even a decent team would fill the 75,000 seat stadium. Washington also has a long winning tradition that includes the Don James era when I was an undergraduate but also goes well back into the early 20th century.
