White's "central casting" comment to the contrary.

Unless you mean that his resume was accurate.
Near the end of 2000, Willingham was 33-33-1 at Stanford, in a very weak Pac-10, having been outscored by 98 points in those games. He had never been a coordinator.
Then he went on a decent winning streak, going 11-2 in the next 13 games. However, only three of those wins were over teams with winning records.
If he had not upset Oregon that year (with Joey Harrington), I doubt he would have been on anyone's list.
