No more guessing, Rodriguez out as Michigan coach

All of the speculation that has gone on since Rich Rodriguez arrived in Ann Arbor, can now be put to rest.

After a three year record of 15-22, his time as the Michigan head coach has ended.

There have been several coaches that Michigan wanted but those coaches do not want them: Bo Pelini of Nebraska, Jim Harbaugh of Stanford, but he is now with the San Francisco 49ers. Gary Pinkel of Missouri said no and there were reports that they want LSU’s Les Miles, but he didn’t seem interested when asked at the Cotton Bowl by reporters.

The 47-year-old Rodriguez left Ann Arbor with a tenure that was marred by turmoil and controversy on and off the field. He experienced more losses than the program has had in decades. His ledger includes:

*A 6-18 record in the Big Ten. He went 0-3 against both Michigan State and Ohio State, the Wolverines top two arch-rivals.

* The first losing season at Michigan in more than 40 years. His first team went 3-9; Michigan’s last losing season (4-6) came in 1967 under Bump Elliott.

* Three years of NCAA¬† probation for five major rules violations. One of the NCAA’s most historic football programs had never been on probation before.

* Michigan’s streak of playing in a bowl game every year since 1975 ended his first year and the second year they did not participate in a bowl. This season, Michigan was hammered in the Gator Bowl by Mississippi State, 52-14, the worst bowl loss in history.

When Rodriguez was hired away from West Virginia, he agreed to a six-year, $15 million contract that stated that he would be paid a $2.5 million buyout if fired on or after January 1, 2011.
