Ty Willingham is out in South Bend. I'm kind of surprised by this one. Notre Dame hasn't been that good the past two years, but I thought they'd at least let Ty finish out his contract. AFAIK, Notre Dame has a history of not firing coaches during their initial coaching contracts. I wonder what would make Willingham so different from all of the Notre Dame coaches that have come before him ...
Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
