Sure many of you got up this morning and said, "Whatever happened to Tyrone Willingham?"
Well, for you I have an answer.
Willingham has been elected to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Board of Directors.
“Tyrone Willingham is one of the most respected names in college football,” said Gary Cavalli, the bowl's executive director and co-founder. "He epitomizes class, character, and the highest level of coaching achievement. Tyrone’s involvement with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl will strengthen our conference and team relationships and help us continue to grow the game.”
Cavalli might have trouble selling that to Notre Dame or Washington fans, but Willingham is a nice get for the bowl game that features the Pac-12's No. 6 team.
Willingham, the news release said, "retired from the coaching profession after the 2008 season, relocating back to the Bay Area in the process."
Hmm. That's not exactly how I remember it but far be it from me to quibble.
