Willingham got off to an auspicious start at Notre Dame. He began the 2002 season by going 8-0, becoming the only first-year coach in Notre Dame history to win 10 games. For his efforts he was named the ESPN/Home Depot College Coach of the Year,[2] the Scripps College Coach of the Year, the Black Coaches Association Male Coach of the Year and the George Munger Award College Coach of the Year by the Maxwell Football Club.[3] The Notre Dame Fighting Irish were led by Tyrone Willingham and represented the University of Notre Dame in NCAA Division I college football from 2002 to 2004. ...


Subsequently, Notre Dame finished 5-7 in 2003 and were beaten badly in four of those losses, getting shut out twice in one season for the first time since 1960. In 2004, Notre Dame posted a 6-5 record regular season, including a 41-16 loss to Purdue and ending with Willingham's third consecutive 31 point loss to the University of Southern California for his fifth blowout loss by 30 points or more in his three seasons. The following Monday, November 30, after an overall record in South Bend of 21–15, Notre Dame terminated Willingham as head coach.[4] Defensive coordinator Kent Baer served as acting head coach for the Insight Bowl, a 38-21 loss to Oregon State University.

Washington

On December 13, 2004, Willingham was hired as the new head coach at the University of Washington. The team returned 19 out of 22 starters from the previous season, in which they had gone 1-10 (0-8 in conference play). As luck would have it, Willingham found himself facing his former team on September 24, 2005. Notre Dame prevailed, 36-17. His first season at Washington ended with a 2-9 record (1-7 in conference play, tied for 9th place), capped by a scuffle after a close loss to Washington State that left Willingham "embarrassed" and vowing that it would not happen again.[5] is the 347th day of the year (348th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

His 2006 Washington team started October with a 4-1 record, with its most notable victory a stunning 29-19 upset over previously undefeated UCLA, before losing its next 6 games after starting quarterback Isaiah Stanback suffered a season ending foot injury in a loss to Oregon State in their sixth game. The Huskies ended the season at 5-7 (3-6 in conference play, 9th place), this time defeating state rival Washington State University (WSU) by 3 points.

The 2007 Huskies faced what a preseason CBS Sports opinion piece called "the toughest schedule in the country" [6] Washington went on to a 4-9 record overall (2-7 in conference play, 10th place). There was considerable debate after the season was over about whether Willingham should be fired as no other coach in the history of the program has had three straight losing seasons.[7] In the end, it was decided that he would return for the upcoming season with the expectation that the team become more competitive. [8]
