My picture is just about all that needs to be said.
Oh and 12.
Never thought I'd see this when I moved to Seattle.
Tyrone Willingham moonwalked with the program in his four years. When he was hired, the biggest fear was supposed to be that he'd only make the Huskies mediocre. Well, surprise, surprise: Turns out he could do a lot worse than mediocre.
To recap some of the lows of this season, which closed Willingham's four-year Husky record at 11-36:
-- The Huskies achieved a Triple Crown of bad defense: Most yards per game allowed, most points per game allowed and most total points allowed in school history.
--They averaged 263.2 yards on offense, the lowest in 41 years.
-- First 0-12 team in Pac-10 team history.
-- Lost nine of 12 games by 20 points or more.
-- Average score this season: 39-13.
After a year like this, after being booted from two straight jobs, you'd think Willingham would want to sit out a season, but he seems adamant about finding another head-coaching gig.
Good luck, bud.
The resume is not looking so hot these days.
