SEATTLE (AP) - A University of Washington official says Tyrone Willingham will return next season as football coach.

There had been some speculation his future was in doubt after a 4-9 record this year.

The Huskies are 11-25 in three years under Willingham and he has two years remaining on his contract.

Willingham and athletic director Todd Turner are holding an end-of-season news conference this afternoon in Seattle.
