Michigan Wolverines athletic director Dave Brandon officially fired Rich Rodriguez after much speculation over the last 24 hours that it was merely an eventuality.
Rodriguez's tenure with Michigan was one of the worst in school history, compiling a record of just six wins to 18 losses against the Big Ten and a .500 winning percentage at home.
Now Brandon and the Wolverines will look towards the future and the variety of coaching candidates out there to replace Rodriguez. The obvious ones have already been mentioned.
Jim Harbaugh and Les Miles both played at Michigan and have been mentioned as candidates; however, both seem very disinterested in taking over a program in complete disarray.
ESPN's Joe Schad mentioned that Brandon is talking to coaches that no one has mentioned publicly. Here are ten mystery coaching candidates for the Michigan Wolverines.
