It may seem like a surprise to have Rich Rod on this list, but his last five years were anything but pretty.
After leaving West Virginia, a team he promised his long-term commitment to, he was charged with breaching his contract. All in all, Michigan had to pay WVU $2.5 million, and Rodriguez had to pay the additional $1.5 million in order to satisfy his buyout.
At Michigan, Rodriguez not only ruined their program for the time being, but he also had his share of controversy in Ann Arbor.
Players like Justin Boren were reported to leave because Rodriguez put their dignity on the line by belittling his players to the point where they felt worthless. According to Detroit Free Press’ Michael Rosenburg, "Rodriguez's staff uses some of the foulest, most degrading language imaginable. I know coaches curse, and I'm no prude, but this goes way beyond a few dirty words. He belittles his players."
Not only did he not go over well with his players, but his coaching staff violated NCAA rules by holding unofficial scrimmages and going over the limit of practice time.
