It’s official...kind of.
Rich Rodriguez is allegedly no longer a Michigan Man, even in name only.
Following a dismal 15-22 record during his tenure as head coach of the Wolverines, he was reportedly dismissed by Athletic Director Dave Brandon.
Brandon told ESPN's Desmond Howard that this is not the case and that Rodriguez's future is undetermined, though, leaving things temporarily up in the air.
Michigan was flogged by Mississippi State in the Wolverines' final game of a 7-5 season, 52-14.
If the speculation is true, then the Wolverines can start fresh, but how will they return to respectability?
Will Jim Harbaugh actually return to his alma mater?
How does the removal of Rodriguez affect the future of Michigan football?
