Rodriguez made a shockingly large amount of money at UA, enough that I can't rule out the possibility that his employers are grasping desperately at a pretext. Rodriguez and his lawyers will file a lawsuit if there's any possibility that my first sentence is on the money.

If his firing is Justified, this is still a disaster for UA. With the early Signing Day, this is the exact wrong year to be in this position. It could take them years to dig out of this hole. When Rodriguez and Graham took the jobs in that state in the same offseason I wondered which would succeed because both could not succeed. With the timing of Rodriguez firing and with the shall I say surprising hire of Herm Edwards at Arizona State you can definitely say that both programs reaped terrible results from promising starts.

Update: Rodriguez is being offered his full buyout. The university press release just about said that the original claims claims made against him were not substantiated. It appears that there could be a second aggrieved party.

What's interesting here is that Rodriguez was due a lot of money from UA just a few months from now.

aren't most of the kids signed already? is the thought that the NCAA would let them out of the letters and so they would have an empty class? or just that a new coach would come in with no ability to recruit a class because it's basically full?

That played no part in the decision

Think you can coach better than Rich Rod?
You (yes you) can now apply to be the next Arizona football head coach
