The Hollywood crowd has been hit, the politicians have been hit, the hypocritical media has been hit, so I'm won't be surprised if this is the first of college coaches to get hit. I bet there are some nervous dudes out there.

Some reports say RR was fired without cause so if true Arizona will have to pay his contract. One article says an independent investigation failed to show sufficient evidence of sexual harassment to justify a termination for cause? The RR termination story seems to be still evolving?

Sounds like a complete snow job against RichRod.

1. The woman who brought the allegations to Arizona’s attention in October refused to turn over any evidence she claimed to have. She threatened a lawsuit against the University.

2. Both the President and AD at Arizona are in their first year while Rich Rod has been there for six. Clearly they were looking for a reason to replace RichRod with their own guy. They will pay the buyout on his contract and the decision was made the day after Arizona’s bowl game loss.

Actually, there are reports that they had made the decision to fire him before the game.

None of this surprises anyone who has covered RR.

Norvell has character issues that have so far kept the P5's away.

Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Yes, his real problem might now be Mrs. Rodriquez to whom he may well be paying one-half of his contract buyout from Arizona. :x

His "womanizing" was well known and not well liked by some high up in the TulaneAthletic Dept when he was here. I remember hearing it back then as one of the reasons they didn't hire him. Of course who knows how accurate that was, but I do remember hearing it.

Sandy Barbour had hired him before Cowen went behind her back and hired Scelfo. That was the beginning of the end of Sandy's days at Tulane, if I remember correctly.

My son is a freshman at The U of Arizona. We’re disgusted by everything we’ve read and heard about RichRod and that the school is going to pay him $6 million as a going away present. In today’s politically correct climate RichRod is finished as a Head Coach at a major University. Maybe he can get a coordinator job at a P5 school after getting his family issues taken care of.

JerseyWave: My permanent residence is in Tucson for the last 14 years. If your son needs anything I can help with, let me know. The University needs its head examined giving this man 6 million. He may be finished as
a head coach but this schmuck can look forward to a very comfortable retirement even if his old lady
takes half!

Latest news: Rodriquez did nothing about a player with a serious drug problem saying: He will be fine"
only for the player to die shortly thereafter from an overdose. As the university learns more, will they wake up and terminate for cause?

Maybe this will finally stop the endless posts about not hiring Rodriguez in the previous century. It's long past time to move on from talking about that.

You are so correct, sir. And, in that way we can devote even more time and posts to 21st Century Tanner Lee! :thumbup:

Thanks for the offer. It's getting ugly for UA athletics and RichRod. Lots of dirt getting thrown around.

Speaking of getting messier, in “defense” of RichRod :confused: former AU quarterback Matt Scott now claims AU basketball coach Sean Miller paid players. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/colle ... -1.3738852

The fun may have just begun @ AU.

This should prove interesting, RR to address national convention of coaches this afternoon. Yes, he serves as the group's president. And, I would presume this will be a very awkward speech indeed even if simply as a greeting. :)

this is the same group that had Briles on the agenda, who was to speak about IX compliance ...I bet that would have been one hell of a interesting speech/address...RR was to follow, with an indepth address regarding work place sexual behavior, the proper do's and don'ts
