Default Notre Dame's coach-Fired

Coach Willingham was fired today by Notre Dame. It is unclear whether he will coach at their bowl game this year. Utah's head coach is the leading candidate to become ND's new coach.

I was just reading that he is a leading candidate at one of the Washington schools. He'll get another job soon. I think he's a good coach. I'm a bit surprised they fired him myself. I thought the Irish had a fairly decent season.

He had 3 seasons. I don't think his offense ever got on track.

Wow that's a bit surprising. I heard on PTI that Notre Dame has a history of honoring their coaches contracts, and haven't fired a coach with years remaining on his contract. He seemed to be making good progress there, but I guess it wasn't enough for the ND faithful. Tyrone had to get the right players to play his WCO, much like Callahan will have to get the right players at Nebraska. Quinn seemed to be maturing nicely at the QB, and their defense played pretty good most of the year. Good luck to the next coach of ND because expecations are obviously very high there.

I just can't agree with firing a coach until he gets his own recruits in place. I didn't like it when they did it at UH a couple of years ago.

If Notre Dame continues all of the blame on their coaches, they are going to be in for endless disappointing seasons.

Agreed....and losing to Boston College and BYU didn't help either.

Inconsistency was one of the biggest complaints.
How do you defeat Michigan, Michigan State, and Tennessee, and lose to BYU, Boston College and Pittsburgh in the same season.
I think most domers are expecting Urban Meyer from Utah to be the next coach but this ND fan would prefer Dan Hawkins from Boise State or Charlie Weiss the NE Offensive Coordinator.
