University of Michigan Fires Head Coach

The University of Michigan announced Tuesday they were firing head coach Rich Rodriguez. Rodriguez spent three seasons at the helm for the football team in Ann Arbor. The final game under Rodriguez was a 38 point loss in the Gator Bowl.

The Wolverines in Rodriguez’ three season went 15-22 overall and 6-18 in games against the Big Ten. When playing against the Wolverines two biggest rivals in Ohio State and Michigan State, Rodriguez went 0-6.

The University will buy out the final three years of his contract. Over that time, the former West Virginia coach will be paid $2.5 million. Nine starters on both sides of the football return next season for Michigan. That includes quarterback Denard Robinson.

Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh has been cited as a potential replacement for Rodriguez, but nothing has been done to this point.
