University of Washington football coach Tyrone Willingham has hired former Syracuse offensive coordinator Brian White to join his football staff.
White was fired at the end of last season after the Orange finished 114th in Division I total offense and 118th in scoring offense.
Before joining Greg Robinson's Syracuse staff in 2006, he had spent 11 seasons at Wisconsin, including six as offensive coordinator.
Willingham has two staff openings -- running backs coach and tight ends/special teams coach.
As of now it is uncertain which opening White will fill. One source told me the decision wouldn't be made until the final hire was identified. However, another said White would handle special teams and tight ends.
Here is a link to a report on White's departure from Syracuse.
