Although neither Coach Rodriguez nor Bill Martin had any knowledge of Justin Feagin's drug dealing incidents prior to his arrival in Ann Arbor, Athletic Director Bill Martin says he's going to do, "Something unilaterally, taking a very serious look at the (recruiting) process."

Despite the review, Martin stood by Coach Rodriguez by saying, "We’ve got a pretty standard process, but no process is perfect. Rich (Rodriguez) did the right thing, and he did it immediately."

Feagin's high school coach also denied any knowledge of Feagin's transgressions. "I only heard about all that stuff as of today," his coach said on Monday. "And I certainly wasn’t aware of any arrests while he was at American Heritage."

Here is a video of Coach Rodriguez defending his actions.
