Willingham Fired by Notre Dame

In another example of bad things happening to good people, Notre Dame fired Ty Willingham. It was a sad day when Willingham left Stanford for Notre Dame. Although I understood that Notre Dame was an opportunity that he just couldn’t turn down, I felt that Ty and Stanford could have been a long term success together. And I didn’t think that he would be able to recruit at the level Notre Dame requires.

I think that the last point has been proven true - Ty hasn’t been able to attract the football talent required to be a top 10 team. Now Notre Dame can select a new sacrificial lamb - a failure will be discarded in 3 years and a success will be burnt out in 5.
