Rich Rodriguez is leaving West Virginia to become coach at Michigan, ending a nearly month-long search by the Wolverines. Rodriguez informed his Mountaineer team on Sunday afternoon and he will be introduced at a news conference Monday in Ann Arbor.
Former West Virginia coach Don Nehlen, who coached at Michigan under Bo Schembechler from 1977-1979, told the Detroit News: "When you coach at West Virginia you walk on water in West Virginia, but when you coach at Michigan, you walk on water, period. There's a difference. Some people around here don't want to believe that."
