Welcome to the Big House Rich Rodriguez!


The Detroit Free Press, ESPN, and other sources are now reporting that Rich Rodriguez, the Head Coach at West Virginia University, has accepted the offer to become Michigan's new head football coach. YES! Finally...I'm so excited. Now, after this hiring, Michigan has taken West Virginia's two main sports head coaches. Last year, they lured head basketball coach, John Beilein, away from WVU and brought him to replace Tommy Amaker and now this. Let me pass on a thank you to West Virginia. Rodriguez is a great coach and more importantly, a great recruiter and I'm extremely happy that Bill Martin got this deal done. An official announcement is supposed to happen at 3pm today, about 5 minutes from now, but according to the Detroit Free Press, Rodriguez has already met with his team and announced his departure. Oh this is such good news...Michigan's rebirth as an elite football program begins today. We can finally put the past 13 embarrassing months behind us and move forward with a great new coach.
