New Huskies AD Patient with Willingham

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE, Wash. - Scott Woodward is the new athletic director at Washington, ending a nine-month search to fill the position.    Woodward has held the position in an interim role since Todd Turner resigned last December. Woodward also served as Washington's vice president of external affairs since arriving at the school in 2004.
      One of Woodward's first tasks will be determining the future of football coach Tyrone Willingham, who is just 11-28 in his four seasons at Washington. He says he'll evaluate the coach at the end of the season.
"They're working hard," he said. "They're nowhere near quitting. It's early in the season. It's premature to talk about anything but supporting them the best we can."
Woodward is also heading the push to renovate Husky Stadium, now in its 89th season.
