Good Riddance

Kent Baer has been fired (from the Seattle Times):

Washington defensive coordinator Kent Baer has been fired, according to a source.

The source said Baer was told of the news this morning.

There was no word on whether any other defensive coaches will also be let go.

A UW spokesman did not confirm Baer’s dismissal, and said no announcement is planned at this time.

Baer has worked for UW coach Tyrone Willingham for 13 seasons, first at Stanford, then Notre Dame and since 2005 as the Huskies’ defensive coordinator.

Baer is the longest-tenured of Willingham’s assistants, having been with him since Willingham was named coach at Stanford in 1995. He has been the coordinator of Willingham’s defenses since 1995.

Baer came under increasing fire this season as UW ranked last in the Pac-10, giving up a school-record 446.4 yards per game.
