Holy Toledo! Rodriguez, Michigan Huddle

It's not known if Rich Rodriguez has been offered the Michigan coaching job, but it's clear the West Virginia coach is the new front-runner for the position.

Rodriguez met with Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman and athletic director Bill Martin for six hours on Friday in Toledo.

Rodriguez, 60-26 in seven seasons at West Virginia, has a $4 million buyout clause in his contract. Michigan hired basketball coach John Beilein from West Virginia last spring.

"I know nothing," Beilein said, smiling.

In other coaching-related news:

UCLA: Slick Rick Neuheisel, John Harbaugh, Norm Chow and DeWayne Walker are on the Bruins' list. A list of finalists could be presented to Chancellor Gene Block by the end of next week.

Duke: As expected, David Cutcliffe is the Blue Devils' new coach.
