As the tweet also says, Rodriguez will serve as the associate head coach of the team and will be introduced at a media press conference next Monday. His son Rhett will also be following him there as he was a former quarterback at Arizona.
Before Rodriguez was the offensive coordinator at Ole Miss, he was the head coach at West Virginia for seven years and went 60-26 before taking the same position at Michigan.
He went 15-22 in Ann Arbor before he was fired and then coached Arizona for six years up until 2017. He compiled a 43-35 record as Wildcats head coach with his best season coming in 2014. Arizona went 10-4 but lost in the Fiesta Bowl. Overall, Rodriguez is 118-83 as a head coach in the 16 seasons that he’s been one.
