SEATTLE (AP) -- The president of the University of Washington
says Husky fans need to give football coach Tyrone Willingham a
break. President Mark Emmert says the team has one of its toughest
schedules ever. The Huskies have gone 0-2 and face No. 3 Oklahoma
next. Emmert says many fans have been offering their opinions on
the football program.
But the president says no one is more frustrated by the losing
record than Willingham. Emmert says the university was weeks away from hiring a new athletic director. The man who hired Willingham was forced to resign.
