Turner fully behind Willingham

There’s been a lot of “Fire Willingham” type comments on this blog in the wake of the Stanford loss.
No offense to any of you who posted that, but that’s not going to happen, so I didn’t bother asking that question this week.
What I did ask UW athletic director Todd Turner was whether he had any concerns about the direction of the football program, and whether he had talked with Willingham about an extension of his contract. Willingham signed a five-year deal when he arrived.
Turner’s comments are in this story here. He said Willingham remains the right man for the job but that they haven’t talked about an extension, only because he doesn’t think it’s necessary now, saying “I’m not worried about his future here.”
We also wrote a story today about possibly moving the Apple Cup to create a bye in the schedule for WSU and UW. Sounds like both schools are willing to think about it since it’s the easiest way for each to get a bye in the schedule. Each is running into lots of depth problems this season due in part to playing 12 games in 12 weeks.
