More Willingham rumors

Okay, so I can’t stay completely away from the football blog despite having basketball duty today, especially after seeing this story in a Michigan newspaper listing Tyrone Willingham as a possible candidate for the vacant position at Michigan State.
What I will caution is that this is only a list of possible candidates based, it appears, solely on conjecture.
Willingham’s a Michigan State grad, so it makes some sense to throw him on the list. But there’s nothing here that says the school is seriously interested in him, or vice versa.
As I wrote here a few days ago, I asked Willingham earlier this week about similar stories linking him to North Carolina and he laughed them off and said he didn’t even want to comment because it wasn’t worth it.
The fact that this is his alma mater makes this a slightly different case. His only tie to North Carolina is that he grew up in the state. But given that this is his second year at UW, it seems likely he’s uninterested in going anywhere.
