The University of Michigan has fired head coach Rich Rodriguez. The news was first reported by Fox 2 in Detroit.

The Wolverines were blown out by Mississippi State this weekend, ending a third disappointing season for the team.

UPDATE: Michigan is denying the reports, but canceled a traditional team meeting on Tuesday (scheduled for the night before classes begin) and has another planned tomorrow afternoon.

They didn’t not deny either though: “The definitive voice on this matter is Brandon and he has not and will not speak publicly until a final decision has been made.”
