Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez is set to meet with South Carolina about the Gamecocks’ coaching vacancy, a source told FOX Sports college football insider Bruce Feldman on Thursday morning.
The 52-year-old Rodriguez, a former Clemson OC, won the Pac-12 South in 2014, going 10-4. It was only the second 10-win season Arizona’s had in program history. He is 32-20 at ‘Zona and has beaten four Top 10 teams the past four seasons.
Rodriguez has gotten the Wildcats bowl eligible in each of his four seasons at U of A — it’s also the first time the program will have qualified for bowl games four years in a row.
Others expected to get interviewed for the Gamecocks job: Auburn DC Will Muschamp, Oklahoma OC Lincoln Riley, former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and Cal coach Sonny Dykes. Interim coach Shawn Elliott already has interviewed.
Feldman reports that he’s hearing South Carolina would like to have its new coach by Sunday.
