Michigan AD will discuss coach's future
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon plans to talk to coach Rich Rodriguez about his future soon after both are back on campus.
Brandon says he probably won't have more to say until the back half of next week.
Rodriguez could not have helped his chances of returning for a fourth season with the Wolverines on Saturday when Mississippi State routed his team 52-14. It was Michigan's worst bowl loss ever.
He told reporters in Jacksonville, Fla., the speculation about his job has been "the elephant in the room."
Rodriguez is 15-22 overall and 1-11 against ranked teams.
