BREAKING: Rich Rodriguez is out at Arizona, sources say.

Apparently he is being fired for workplace misconduct. They are way late to the Coach hiring season. I wonder who they can get.

I wouldn't be surprised if that happened. I believe the Arizona AD is a good friend of Jeff Long.

Bobby Petrino?

I do not think they have the guts to hire Bobby Petrino.  Although it would be a great hire and would stir up the Pac 12 conference.  CBP would turn that program around quickly IMHO.

There has to be a reason Sumlin hasn't got a job. I think there is something holding him back we don't know about.

Probably wants to take the year off. He gets $10 Million by the end of the month no matter what he does.

Yeah he would.  Don't believe it would happen though.  Petrino is completing the first year of a new multi-year deal and is making around $4.5 million.

Here's an article that goes more in detail.

https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/report-arizona-coach-rich-rodriguez-may-fired-workplace-misconduct-claim/

I think it is a bit to extreme to fire someone despite your probe coming up with nothing. I sexual misconduct can be serious but to fire despite evidence that he didn't do it? This is going to get messy. I hope Arizona isn't stupid enough to try to weasel out of the buyout because of this.

Rich Rod has been a sleeve for years. I heard he had gotten a cheerleader pregnant back at WVU.  I donít have links but I know people who knew him and he is a sleez so Iím not surprised at all

Question? Are there any single head coaches? I'm sure there are plenty of affairs and people looking for money. Best to be just focused on your job cause they will dig up dirt.

Right, his AD buddy was fired which would let him leave without penalty but again, not one SEC team inquired about him. I doubt anyone would want him especially after losing to a Miss State team w/o their coach.

The only coach that I can think of that might not be married right now is P.J. Fleck. There was a huge scandal with him at Western Michigan where he had an affair with a booster's wife which resulted in a divorce with his wife. He might have remarried. Beilema was single most of his time at Wisconsin.  The vast majority of coaches marry young and don't get divorced.

Why do you think he would want back in the SEC when he just got a new multi-year contract and is making $4.5 million a year with a lot less pressure where he is?

As a man, this is scary as hell. Woman in the workplace accuses you of harrassment. No wrong doing found, you still get fired because of the "current environment".

Sounds fair.

Think of the last woman that sexually harassed you and expose her. If you have a woman that has being playing with your coin purse without permission, it's time to get her fired.

Sounds fair.

I had an absolutely crazy chick who worked for me years ago.  One night I was sitting in our bar talking to the bartender when she got off work.  She came in and tried to get me to drive her to the casinos in Shreveport.  I declined, telling her I had to be at work early in the morning and besides I didn't think her boyfriend, who I knew, would appreciate it.  She said it would be fine, he didn't care, but I wasn't having any part of it.

She tried to get another of my male employees, a guy who was engaged, to take her to the lake.

One day she told another of the female employees that she thought I might have sexually harassed a third female employee who worked a couple of nights and then quit.  The real story was that the girl was working the all night shift, as in 11 pm to 7 am, and decided that staying up all night wasn't for her.  The harassment story was BS and wasn't even claimed by the one who quit.  It was Casino Chick who made the claim/started the rumor.  The woman to whom it was repeated laughed in her face and told her employees who had worked for me for a lot longer than she had thought it was ridiculous and completely out of character.

Still, if this woman had persisted...how do you prove you didn't do something, that you are innocent?

Bobby Petrino?

Rich Rod admitted to having an affair. However there are rumblings of a Harassment suit. As of now Arizona is not claiming fired for cause and thus not as of this time disputing any potential buyout. The thing to remember was Bobby was not fired for his affair. He was fired for lying to his boss and such. Apparently Rich owned up to his affair and didn't lie about it. The question is IF the harassment claim becomes believable and continues forward then what does Arizona do.
