We have a bit of discussion about this in the 2007-2008 UofM, Hail to the Victors Thread. It starts at #78.
wow kinda suprised at that. he left a good gig at wvu and turned down miami last year. not sure what he is thinking but it seems michigan likes to make wvu some money in hiring their coaches.
He turned down Alabama last year. I don't think Miami even bothered trying to get him: for all Miami's "swagger" and national championships their athletic department is POOR. As in, no money in the bank, broke as shit poor.
They're just really sloppy with their money there.
West Virginia fans, being the fucking retards they are, are freaking out about it. I mean, these are the people who burn couches in their town when they win (or lose, or win big, or lose small, etc.).
"I'm so happy/pissed I'm going to set my own furniture on fire!!"
Word is that WVU fucked up their relationship with RichRod pretty good. Not that RichRod isn't a douchebag: he is. But Michigan is used to that with Carr. RichRod took the better job, and good for him. But WVU's AD is just a shithead.
Dude is your head football coach, and you make him jump through hoops to get his wife a sideline pass? Dude shouldn't have to put it in his contract (like RichRod did). He should be able to tell his secretary to take care of it, and get it taken care of. There was all sorts of penny-ante shit that RichRod had to put up with because he apparently couldn't run his own program at WVU.
wow didnt know it was that bad/stupid in wvu. michigan will be good for him and is by no means a bad job. i just thought that miami for all its financial problems always seems to win with the right coach. plus its one of the best states to recruit in. but he will do just fine in ann arbor
The Miami job is shit. The facilities are 20-30 years old, the weight room looks like crap, etc., etc.
The last good coach at Miami was Butch Davis, and Miami can't afford to rehire Butch. He's getting ~$2 million a year at UNC, and Miami can't afford that kind of cash.
The WVU situation is just fucked up. West Virginia (the state) has all sorts of corruption problems, and all indications are that it's the same with their athletic department. Lots of "whose dick is bigger" shit going on between the AD and RichRod before RichRod quit, and that's not an isolated thing IMO.
