Rich Rodriguez, who was fired at Michigan in January following three disappointing seasons, is joining CBS Sports Network as a color analyst for games with play-by-play man Dave Ryan and will also appear in studio and on the network’s weekly radio show. CBS Sports Network — formerly known as CBS College Sports and different from CBS Sports — airs Mountain West and Conference USA games and is in fewer than 40 percent of homes with televisions, according to the Associated Press.
RichRod was 16-22 with the blue and maize, and Michigan was hit with NCAA sanctions for the first time because of rules violations while he was coach. Matt Millen decimated the Lions during his stint as general manager and now enjoys a career as a broadcaster, so it seems like a future in sports television is bolstered by an ability to cripple a Michigan sports program.
