Ty Willingham Resigns, Effective End of Season

According to this news report out of Seattle, Washington Head Football Coach Ty Willingham will be stepping down at the end of the season. Full text of the report:

SEATTLE, Wash. - University of Washington football coach, Tyrone Willingham, says he will step down at the end of season. The Huskies are winless in seven games this year. They have an 11-32 record under Willingham.

Pressure has been growing on the university to fire Willingham. Athletic Director Scott Woodward had said he didn't foresee making a change in the middle of the season.

Willingham decided to resign after Saturday's 33-7 loss to Notre Dame. This Saturday the Huskies are playing at No. 7 Southern Cal. The Trojans are 6-1.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled goofing off ...

He was actually fired. Make no mistake about it - he did not resign. I watched his press conference.
