Arizona's Rich Rodriguez addresses Virginia Tech, more coaching rumors
When Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer announced his retirement, Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez was mentioned as a frontrunner replacement.
Rodriguez has also been listed as a candidate for Miami's vacancy; he was mentioned as a lead candidate to replace Steve Spurrier at South Carolina, as well. Arizona, suddenly 5-4 on the season with a 2-4 conference record, is in the middle of a rough season and speculation is that Rodriguez may no longer be coach next season.
“It’s all just rumors and speculation,” said Rodriguez, via Scout.
“The speculation on message boards and rumor sites is speculation for everybody, not just me. It normally happens around the last week or two around the regular season anyway."
