Rich Rodriguez Fired: 11 Potential Candidates to Coach Michigan Football

Rich Rodriguez, the embattled coach of Michigan football, was fired this afternoon according to multiple media reports, including Fox2 Detroit and the Detroit Free Press.

Now what?

Rodriguez spent three seasons in Ann Arbor, his tenure marked by mostly by historic losses. He went 15-22 in three seasons and 6-18 in the Big Ten, losing a combined six games to arch rivals Ohio State and Michigan State.

His first season in 2008 produced the first losing year in Michigan football since 1967, as the Wolverines went 3-9 and ended a streak of 33 consecutive bowl appearances.

Now speculation obviously turns to who the next Michigan coach will be. Most of the conversation has centered on Stanford coach and former Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh, but the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday that Harbaugh is unlikely to take the job.

That remains to be seen, of course, but there is no shortage of candidates.
