Not super shocked, but I thought they'd give him another year. His offense was coming along, but the defense was obviously horrible. I'm sure he'll catch on somewhere soon though.

Michigan has fired football coach Rich Rodriguez after his third season ended with a school-record 38-point loss in the Gator Bowl, Fox 2 TV in Detroit is reporting.

The report comes after Rodriguez met with athletic director Dave Brandon earlier Tuesday.

Members of the football team are scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, according to another report out of Ann Arbor.

Michigan's Gator Bowl loss to Mississippi State knocked Rodriguez's overall record to 15-22 with college football's winningest program.

Michigan will owe the coach $2.5 million to buy out the final three years of his contract.

The rest of the Big 10 is sad to see Rich Rod go.

I don't get the love affair some of these schools have with Malzahn. Dude was a high school coach 5 years ago. He was not good at Arkansas, pretty good at Tulsa, and great at Auburn with the Heisman trophy winner as his QB. If I were a big program I would stay far away from Malzahn. Let him earn his stripes somewhere else as a head guy first.

He probably would have been decent had they given him a shot at Tulane.

I think Hoke is the guy that ends up coaching Michigan.

Les Miles could end up there too.
