CHAMBERS LEAVING WASHINGTON
As he first reported on Thrusday 950, KJR’s Dave Mahler has confirmed that Craig Chambers is leaving the University of Washington. Mahler reports that Chambers meet with Head Coach Tyrone Willingham today and has asked for his release.
Chambers has mentioned the University of Montana as a possible next stop. That makes sense since Bobby Hauck, former Washington assistant and now head coach of the Grizzlies, recruited Chambers.
Chambers lack of work ethic at practice and attention to detail has been a sticking point during his tenure at Washington with both head coach Keith Gilbertson and Tyrone Willingham.
In other Huskies news, 950,KJR Dave Mahler also reported that Willingham decided against playing a 13th game in Hawaii.
Both of these stories show that Willingham is working hard to install a culture to the University of Washington. The largest surprise for Willingham in his first year was the amount he had to coach effort and desire. It is clear that continues to be his focus.
