Washington coach Tyrone Willingham was asked today if he "gets a kick" out of the national discussion about his firing from Notre Dame in light of the school's 0-3 start under Charlie Weis.
At first, Willingham thought the question was if he gets a kick out of Notre Dame's failure, and he quickly made it clear that he sees no point in ever enjoying another's troubles.
However, even when it was clarified that the question was merely about whether he is amused by the national debate, he strongly denied it and instead used the opportunity to speak up for his current job.
"I'm very happy, very comfortable, at the University of Washington," he said. "I think we're moving our program in the right direction. I'm very excited about not only our quarterback, but our entire football team. I'm excited about our coaches the building process and the univeristy that we have. So no, I don't get a kick out of any of those discussions and prefer that they don't exist."
