Mike Haywood Fired: Could Rich Rodriguez End Up At Pittsburgh?

In one of the shortest head coaching tenures in college football history, Mike Haywood was fired as the Pittsburgh coach before he even coached a game for the Panthers.

And as pointed out by ESPN's Bruce Feldman on Twitter, Haywood's 14-day tenure is only about 16,300 days shy of Joe Paterno's at rival Penn State.

For the second time this season, Pitt is looking for a new head coach. And ironically, the answer to the Panthers' problem could be fired within a matter of hours.

Embattled Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez will likely be searching for a new job after his embarrassing 52-14 Gator Bowl defeat to Mississippi State today and three underachieving seasons.

Rodriguez, who left West Virginia for the Michigan job following the 2007 regular season, could be headed back to the Big East, this time for the Mountaineers' biggest rival.

Let's take a look at the most likely candidates for the Pittsburgh job.
