Washington has fired football coach Jimmy Lake in his second season, the school announced Sunday.

Defensive coordinator Bob Gregory will serve as interim coach.

Lake’s firing comes on the heels of his serving a one-game suspension without pay on Saturday following a sideline incident on Nov. 6 in which he appeared to strike redshirt freshman linebacker Ruperake Fuavai during a 26-16 loss to Oregon.

On Saturday, the Seattle Times, citing five anonymous players, reported that Lake faced another allegation that he was physical with a player during halftime of a game against Arizona in 2019.
