Early reports today aren't good but I'm wondering if it's a negotiating ploy to see how much Michigan will pay to get him into town. All sources pointed to Ann Arbor before the Orange Bowl and now seem to be going back on it.
Whether he stays or goes, I've never been enamored of RichRod in Michigan. He doesn't fit the culture, and he's not the solution to the Michigan problem.
You guys gotta get a solid coach in there, one that meshes with Michigan Football.
If (well, when) Michigan comes back to prominence, the Legends division is going to be a force. Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Sparty.... that's a hell of a division. Toss in a year of relevance from Northwestern and Minny every once in a while and that's a division you can be proud to win.
Michigan has fired head football coach Rich Rodriguez after three seasons, according to Fox 2 News in Detroit.
Rodriguez was 15-22 overall during his Michigan tenure and just 1-10 against ranked opponents. The Wolverines ended this season with a 52-14 loss to Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl, the worst bowl loss in school history.
Rodriguez's job status has been a hot topic all season. AD Dave Brandon elected to wait until after Michigan's bowl game to decide whether to fire Rodriguez.
Rodriguez was also 0-6 against Ohio State and Michigan State, Michigan's biggest football rivals.
