Where is he now?

A Notre Dame basher friend (boy is that an oxymoron) recently decided to try and rub some sea salt (healthier that regular salt) in my scabbed over Ty Willington Era wounds.

“Hey Sub, what’s Ty doin these days?”

“Watching his one year million dollar buyout from the Huskies and three-year $650,000 (per year and concluded) payoff from Notre Dame grow into a nice investment and retirement nest egg I guess,” was all I could come up with at the time.

Thanks to Google, the following postscript can be added.

After leaving the University of Washington, Ty relocated and bought a house in the San Francisco Bay area. He served as President of the Board of Trustees to the American Football Coaches Association during 2008-2009.

He was then offered a coaching job by his old friend, Dennis Green who was the head coach and general manager of the United Football League, (UFL) San Francisco Redwoods – soon to be renamed the California Redwoods.

The UFL is a fledging four-team minor football league headed up by investor, Paul Pelosi. Yup, husband to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Rumor has it he plopped down $30 million during a deep recession no else, to be the league president.

Anyway, Ty mulled the offer to be the special teams and running backs coach for the Redwoods, but decided to turn down the offer. It seems like once again, Ty, for whatever reason came out smelling like a rose. The USF has about as much a chance of fielding teams in 2010 (after a disastrous inaugural year in 2009) as Michigan has of beating the Irish this fall.

So where is Ty?

Guess the picture pretty much says it all………………..
