Notre Dame's first black head football coach is fired halfway through his contract. Tyrone Willingham started out strong in 2002, but his last two seasons have been a disappointment. Joseph Kasko of member station WVPE reports from South Bend, Ind., on Willingham's 21-15 stint with the Fighting Irish.
