Rich Rodriguez Fired As Michigan Football Coach; Press Conference At 12:30 Wednesday

After reports circulated on Tuesday that Rich Rodriguez had been fired as Michigan football coach, we now have more official confirmation that RichRod has, indeed, be relieved of his duties. Several outlets are confirming it via Twitter, including ESPN’s Joe Schad and Detroit Free Press’ Angelique Chengelis.

Chengelis is reporting that Rodriguez’s staff has been fired, as well, and Schad tweets that RichRod is meeting with his coaches Wednesday morning to inform them of the decision. Athletic Director Dave Brandon will hold a 12:30 p.m. press conference on Wednesday to announce the decision.

Rodriguez went 15-22 in his three years at Michigan, and led the team to its first winning season of his tenure in 2010, going 7-6. The Wolverines lost their bowl game, however, as they were destroyed by Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. Rodriguez’s spread offense finally got on track this season, but the defense was the team’s ultimate undoing.
