Bill Martin has told fans that Rich Rodriguez's job is safe.

"He's not going anyplace," Martin said of Rodriguez. Rich is an outstanding coach. There is no question he's got my total support. I think the world of that guy. Is he perfect in every respect? Nobody is. But he works hard. He'll get it right."

The Purdue loss was particularly hard. "It was a very emotion-filled time for Rich and myself after the game," said Martin. "He helped me, I helped him (after the game). I think this loss was hard on all of us. It was hard on Rich, it was hard on me.

"But this guy is a winner. This guy's not used to losing."
