Willingham on Mora, and more

Tyrone Willingham met the media today to discuss his involvement in a new project called Flashback Football, which are fantasy camps for adults. Here’s a link to the site. The camp at UW will run July 27-29.
We also asked Willingham about some of the news of the day, including the controversy over the comments made by Jim Mora last week on KJR-AM when Mora indicated he would drop everything to take the Husky job were it available.
Willingham said he hadn’t heard about the comments until a few days after they were made.
“If you just let people speak you can really find out a lot,” Willingham said. “As I heard one of the commentators say, that was a great case of opening mouth and
inserting foot is what I think they said, so I was pretty comfortable with anything that came out.”
He wouldn’t acknowledge specifically that Eric Yarber is leaving, saying he won’t comment until it’s made official.
But he said “there will be (staff changes)” referring to Yarber, and that “I am never in a rush to make that decision. The key is to get the right person. I think we had the right persons and I think that’s been identified by how our players have responded to our coaches so I will be in no rush to make an adjustment to that.”
Asked his thoughts on recruiting to date he said “I think we are doing well, you don’t say you are doing very well until everything is wrapped up on signing day. … But I’m very pleased with where we are at. (Having 21 commitments at this stage) to me is a very exciting number even before we get to Christmas. Only leaves room for a few more to come in. I’m excited about the guys we have coming in because they are the caliber of player we are looking for and the caliber of person.”
He also said there was no change in the status of Michael Houston and that there has been no other change to the current roster.
