Tormey gone?

That’s the rumor from up on Montlake today that the last remaining holdover from Tyrone Willingham’s staff —- Chris Tormey — has been let go.
Steve Sarkisian is back in the office today, expected to announce some members of his new staff tomorrow. And the rumor emanating today is that Tormey won’t be part of it.
Sarkisian got rid of the other eight members of Willingham’s staff last week but kept Tormey on a temporary basis, apparently to keep recruiting in place. But rumor today is that Tormey was told this morning he won’t be retained.
Still no official confirmation of that, however.
I do know that a number of the new defensive coaches are on campus today, beginning work as Huskies.
If Tormey is indeed gone — and the source of the rumor sounds pretty reliable — it will mark the first complete housecleaning of a UW coaching staff since at least the time when Jim Owens took over in 1957.
I don’t know what Owens did when he got the job and that was a different era that would hardly be comparable to now in any way.
But I know that Don James kept at least one member of the previous staff, Jim Lambright, who got his coaching start under Owens in 1969.
Rick Neuheisel kept two members of Lambright’s staff — Randy Hart and Wayne Moses.
And Tyrone Willingham kept Hart and Tormey when he took over.
Speaking of Hart, I talked with someone close to him who said he has no intentions of retiring and is out looking for a coaching job.
