SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) _ Notre Dame fired football coach Tyrone Willingham after three seasons, the school announced Tuesday.

Willingham had a record of 21-15, including 6-5 this season.

It is not immediately clear whether Willingham would coach the team at the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28. Notre Dame accepted the invitation to the game on Sunday.

Athletic director Kevin White was to hold a news conference on the firing later Tuesday.
