Rich Rodriguez Takes Over At Arizona

Arizona Athletic Director Greg Byrne tweeted today that he had chosen Rich Rodriguez to replace Mike Stoops as the Arizona football coach.

Stoops went 41-50 in seven-plus seasons at the Pac-12 school. Rodriguez had turned West Virginia into a national program, taking the Mountaineers to two BCS bowls. He was hired at Michigan where he never fit in, and was fired after three years with a 15-22 record as the Wolverines head man.

Reports indicate that Arizona went after former Oregon Coach Mike Bellotti, but he declined the offer.
