After being suspended during the disappointing season, how can Washington continue with Jimmy Lake? – The Athletic

SEATTLE – The suspension is for one game only, not for pay. Jimmy Lake won’t stay on the sidelines of Washington when it hosts Arizona State on Saturday. Bob Gregory, defensive coordinator, will serve as head coach. Lake seemed able to resume his duties as head coach the next day; that’s when the suspension is officially lifted, as the school detailed Monday in a statement from athletic director Jen Cohen.

Maybe Lake will return to coach against Colorado. Maybe he will finish the season. Or maybe the school will decide between now and then that it is better to sever ties with its reputable head coach and officially begin the search for his replacement.

“I don’t know,” Gregory said, asking if he expected Lake to return next week. “It’s up to Jen.”

But you have to know where this is going, whether this week or next week or next.

UW won’t fire Lake just because he attacked a pedestrian Ruperake Fuavai in a sidefight during the first half of Saturday’s loss to Oregon, though that’s why the school suspended him. No, UW ultimately had to go through because Lake hit one of his players midway through season 4-5 due to a failed offensive coordinator hire and problematic game management – and was terminated by a series of public comments claiming he didn’t get it.

How can Washington continue with Lake as his coach? There’s nothing to come back from this, no potential win enough to justify keeping someone who’s already completely embarrassed by the show – and whose boss has now put his name on the line. perpetual praise on his resume.
