Jim Lambright, who spent 35 years as a player, assistant and coach at Washington, was fired Wednesday after the Huskies failed to post a winning record for the first time in 22 years. Athletic Director Barbara Hedges said that she alone made the decision to fire Lambright, 57, and his staff.

Finally, it all caught up to him. Here was a 52-year-old man standing before his football team . . . and crying, unashamedly. When Jim Lambright became Washington's football coach a year ago, replacing Don James, who abruptly resigned after 17 years, Lambright was suddenly a head coach, after 29 years in coaching. He went numb, and stayed numb for about two weeks. There wasn't much time to think about it. The opener against Stanford was only 12 days away when he became Washington's 22nd coach.

He bided his time and took comfort in James' promise that one day--a year from now . . .
