Washington coach Tyrone Willingham will be stepping down at the end of the year. And by 'stepping down' I mean they fired him.

"We didn't win enough football games. That's it," Willingham said. "Hopefully, we've done all the other things right, [and] it's a good strong program for someone to jump into and do things."

Other things? Winning isn't everything, Tyrone. It's the only thing.

ESPN is reporting that the candidates to replace him are likely to include fired Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin, Seattle Seahwaks assistant Jim Mora Jr, Gary Pinkel, Missouri OC Dave Christiansen, Boise St coach Chris Petersen and Will Muschamp.

Washington athletic director Scott Woodward worked at LSU at the same time as Muschamp.
