Washington Huskies head coach Jimmy Lake is reportedly being fired this week, according to a report from Pete Thamel.

Lake was recently suspended without pay for his conduct during the Huskies’ most recent game against the Oregon Ducks. Lake was seen on the sideline striking a player and shoving him in the back after a scuffle with an Oregon player.

Washington fired offensive coordinator John Donovan following the loss to the Ducks, but waited until this weekend to make a further decision on Lake.

According to Thamel, Washington will not fire Lake for cause, but will rather pay out the remainder of his buyout.
