Ty Lands a Job

Ty Willingham didn't stay unemployed for long. The second-highest-paid and second losingest coach in UW history--profiled in 2006 by SW's Philip Dawdy--has reportedly landed as the special teams/running backs coach for the newly-formed UFL's San Francisco team.

The job marks a return to the Bay Area, where Willingham had his best years (as Stanford's head coach), and also a return to working under former-NFL coach Dennis Green, who under whom Willingham worked when he was first coming up. Green, if you may recall, is also responsible for delivering the classic, "They are who we thought they were" speech.
