Anyone describing coach Tyrone Willingham would get to the word "loyalty" pretty quickly. But Willingham said today that loyalty to the UW football program tops loyalty to his coaching staff.
And if Willingham decides to make changes on his staff, he said he expects little trouble hiring quality coaches, despite heading into the fourth year of his five-year contract with a mild vote of confidence but no contract extention.
"My phone has been ringing off the hook," he said, with coaches eager to fill his running backs coaching spot - which came open yesterday when Trent Miles accepted the head job at Indiana State. Willingham indicated he would expect the same reception if any other staff jobs come open.
