Job security far from Rich Rodriguez's mind entering season's final stretch
Entering the final two weeks of the regular season, Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday that he’s focused on Wisconsin and Ohio State.
Any chatter about his spot on a coaching hot seat is far from the forefront of his concern.
“I understand the talk is out there, and has been out there for three years, probably since the day I took the job and stood right here at my very first press conference,” Rodriguez said.
“All we do is come to work every day with the goal of building the best program in America. We’ve had obstacles, we’ve had bumps in the road, but we’re pressing forward. I’m hoping there’s enough positive momentum and positive talk that the negativity out there gets pushed aside a little bit.”
Michigan (7-3, 3-3 Big Ten) plays host to No. 5 Wisconsin (9-1, 5-1) at noon Saturday (ESPN) at Michigan Stadium.
