Willy Robinson Is Out as Defensive Coordinator

New, 21 comments

The carousel keeps on spinning. That's right, folks, Willy Robinson is out as defensive coordinator.

I'll miss the mustache. I won't miss the gaudy offensive totals that our opponents regularly ran up.

Here's the lowdown from Chris Low of ESPN.com.

And from Chris Bahn of AS360.com, here's Petrino's comment on Willy's firing "resignation":

"I want to thank Willy Robinson for his role in helping our defense, which he leaves in better shape than when he arrived. I have the utmost respect for Willy Robinson as an individual who wants the best for the young men he coaches. I give Willy credit for his part in the building process the last four years and wish him future success."

So, who's the early front-runner to be the new DC? I hear Houston Nutt is now accepting offers.
