Rich Rodriguez Fired: AD refutes report of contract offer to Jim Harbaugh
"I just relieved our current coach of his responsibilities a couple of hours ago," Brandon said. "I haven't talked to anybody yet. I'm not going to get into this game of who and lists. I'm going to do my best to talk to people that are qualified."
Asked about an ESPN report that Harbaugh was offered a contract worth $5.2 million, Brandon said, "There's never been a contract. There's never been an offer. That report is erroneous."
Asked about money, Brandon said, "We've traditionally been in the middle of the pack. I don't necessarily believe that's appropriate. The marketplace dictates what the pricetag is. I believe my boss and my boss's bosses understand that."
On Rich Rodriguez's reaction: "He's a consummate professional. Is he disappointed? Yes. But I have nothing bad to say about Rich Rodriguez."
