In a twist that would make the writers of General Hospital jealous, Rod is heading to Michigan.
The Charleston Gazette:
The Rich Rodriguez era at West Virginia ended early Sunday afternoon, not with a bang, but with a whimper.
In an early afternoon meeting with his football team, Rodriguez announced he was leaving to become the head coach at Michigan.
Rodriguez walked into a scheduled 1:30 p.m. meeting with his team and emerged 10 minutes later without comment and walked briskly back to his office. Shortly thereafter the players began to file out of the meeting room, somber-faced and generally without comment.
Rodriguez reportedly met with Michigan officials this past Friday in Toledo, Ohio.
Early names to replace Rod include Jimbo Fisher and Terry Bowden.
More will follow after the 1:00 pm NFL Games. Please feel free to put your thoughts in the comments section.
