Multiple sources are saying that Rich Rodriguez has been fired as Michigan's head football coach; and given that we know he was meeting with Brandon sometime today, it's probably true. This was expected after a poor bowl performance, but I don't agree with it unless they actually have a good replacement already lined up.
The buzz going around is that Harbaugh will bolt to the NFL or remain at Stanford, which means most UM fans are going to be very disappointed - especially after seeing how good he made Stanford last night.
*UPDATE*: Dave Brandon has come out saying that RR has not been fired, however there will be a meeting between him and Rodriguez tomorrow, as well as a players' meeting. Chances are he'll still get fired anyway, but it looks like the media jumped the gun on this one.
John Harbaugh (Ravens coach) has tweeted that his brother is unlikely to go to Michigan, and that's surely a reliable source, I mean why would his brother make stuff up? So it seems like Harbaugh really is out of Michigan's reach now, does that give RR just a little bit more hope of staying around?
