Rich Rodriguez's newest staff member a familiar face to 2 Michigan football players
Recruiting high school teammates Craig Roh and Taylor Lewan paid off twice for former Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez.
First, he convinced Roh, a defensive end/linebacker, and Lewan, an offensive lineman, to leave their home state of Arizona and play at Michigan, where they both are key contributors in the Wolverines' 10-2 season.
Now Roh and Lewan's former high school coach, Charlie Ragle, is part of Rodriguez's new staff at Arizona, azcentral.com reports.
Ragle, who compiled a 63-7 record in five seasons at Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., was named today as the assistant director of football operations at Arizona.
"I think anything you do in life is based on relationships," Ragle said, according to azcentral.com. "... In 2008, we established a relationship. We spent time with their staff. He had already gotten our kids. He had gotten to see our program from the inside out and had never forgotten it."
