Former Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez gets a second chance at coaching in a BCS conference, replacing Mike Stoops at Arizona. I, for one, wish Rodriguez all the best and hope he does well in Tucson.
"Rich is an accomplished, well-recognized coach with a wealth of knowledge about the game," David Berson, Executive Vice President, CBS Sports and President, CBS Sports Network, said in a released statement. "Rich was an integral part of our Signing Day and Draft coverage. We are excited to add him to our already strong line-up of football talent and look forward to showcasing his analysis and insights during the upcoming season."
Honestly, I'm pretty happy for Rich. I've always liked the guy and I think a little time in front of the camera like this will do him some good. He was always a little off when the lights were on, and I'm hoping that this gig with smooth out some of those rough edges. He's a great offensive coach, a graet person, and I bet he's going to be a great broadcaster this year.
Good Luck Rich!
According to multiple sources, including our friends at the Detroit News, former Michigan Football Head Coach Rich Rodriguez will be working with CBS Sports during this year's national recruiting signing day. It's a nice gig for Rodriguez and hopefully will get him some positive exposure as he talks about something he knows cold: recruiting. Good luck Coach. We're all rooting for you to catch on somewhere great.... just not in the Big Ten.
