The tenure of Rich Rodriguez at Michigan has been bumpy, to say the least.
Speaking of RichRod, he just might be the one leading Robinson out the door at Michigan.
Rodriguez was hired to be the head man at Michigan in 2008 following the "retirement" of Lloyd Carr.
The move was a rather controversial one, with Wolverines fans pining instead for Les Miles, a former player and assistant coach under the legendary Bo Schembechler who had just led the LSU Tigers to the national title.
Despite the opening, Miles didn't budge, leading the administration in Ann Arbor to bring in Rodriguez.
To be fair, Rodriguez came into Michigan with a formidable resume, including four Big East championships in seven seasons at West Virginia, his alma mater.
However, it didn't take long for things to sour.
First came the contentious contract termination talks between Rodriguez and West Virginia, which led to a lawsuit that was eventually settled out of court.
Then, of course, came RichRod's spread offense, which (predictably) struggled to win games and support at a school with a long history of success with more traditional offenses.
Add to that a rash of transfers, minor recruiting violations and a 3-9 record in his first season—the worst such mark in Michigan's long football history—and things haven't exactly taken off for RichRod at Michigan, to say the least.
With a 15-21 mark to date, don't expect Rodriguez to stick at Michigan for much longer, or to get snapped up too quickly after he's let go.
