Willingham says “everybody” needs to support head coach

The final Tyrone Willingham coaches show aired earlier tonight, and if anyone expected him to get introspective in one of his final chances to talk with Husky fans, they hadn’t been paying attention the last four years.
It has never been Willingham’s style — either here or elsewhere — to delve much into the past, and he held to to that stance today.
Asked in a very friendly manner at one point to talk about what might have gone wrong during his UW tenure — would things have been different had Isaiah Stanback not gotten hurt in 2006, for instance? — Willingham said he’d save those kinds of thoughts for another day.
“At some point I will do that,” he said, before saying that he prefers to look ahead.
During his weekly press conference earlier in the day, Willingham admitted that he felt some “overall disappointment of things we haven’t done” when asked about his thoughts entering his final week as UW’s coach. But that was about as far as he got.
He was also asked during his coaches show if he had any advice for the next head coach. Willingham said it’s not about the head coach but about the support he will receive from everyone around the program.
“Everybody supporting the head coach needs to get on that program,” he said.
Willingham didn’t explicitly say he didn’t get that kind of support during his time at UW, but the implication seemed pretty clear.
Asked what he might do in the future, Willingham was predictably vague, agreeing that this season won’t make his resume look better should he try to get another coaching job. But he also said that the “the only place I haven’t been successful was here at the Universitiy of Washington” a statement with which a few people at Notre Dame might disagree.
Willingham was also asked about his future during his weekly press conference earlier in the day and was said that “at the appropriate time something could be out there for me but I’ll be in no rush.”
PETERSEN SAYS HE’S STAYING PUT — Here’s an updated item from the Idaho Statesman tonight indicating that Chris Petersen has no plans to leave Boise State.
