It's now official, Rich Rodriguez has been relieved as the Head Football Coach at the University of Michigan.
Dave Brandon, Michigan's Athletic Director, held a press conference earlier today in Ann Arbor, stating that he would conduct a national search for the Wolverines next coach, and that yes, he has talked to Stanford Head Coach Jim Harbaugh, several times,"in the past."
The end of the three year experiment of bringing in a coach that didn't fit into the typical Wolverine philosophy of Big Ten football.
The Michigan record of 15-22 was the worst 3 year stretch in the 131 year history of college football's All-Time leader in wins and winning percentage.
Besides Harbaugh, ex Michigan assistants Brady Hoke, the San Diego State Head Coach, and Les Miles, the Head Coach at LSU, have been named as possible candidates for the Michigan job.
