Ty, I think is a good coach...not a good fit at ND,or washington...look at what he did at Stanford.
He would do good at somewhere who wants to win and not keeps coaches on a leash!

ty can coach a high school team as long as you don't have to recruit.....to tell ya the truth, he is a very avg coach and a horrible recruiter which translates into failure in college. by the way he really didn't do that great of a job at Stanford. He is lazy and will do well if recruits just decide to go to the school that he is at because he won't put forth any effort to get them there. I think he is a good man, so am I but that doesn't make him or me a good fit coaching in college.

His recruits werent that bad. When Weis first came to town, he got Willingham's team. They went to 2 stright BCS Bowls. Honestly, how the hell do you recruit at Washington, what you got USC, Cal, and UCLA in front of you?

actually he played with bob davies one good recruiting class and ty's 2nd class which was the only one that ranked in the top 50 while ty was there. Washington used to be a power but they let Tyrone in and well look at them now.
