Washington head coach Jimmy Lake yells toward the field during a football game against California on Sept. 25, 2021, in Seattle. On Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, Washington fired Lake less than two years after he was chosen to succeed Chris Petersen.

The University of Washington has fired football coach Jimmy Lake. The action came Sunday, just under a week after the university suspended Lake for shoving one of his players on the sidelines on Nov. 6.
