Arizona has fired head coach Rich Rodriguez following a 7-6 record in the 2017 season. An announcement regarding the decision came from the university late Tuesday night.

USA Today’s Dan Wolken reported that Arizona was considering potentially firing the Wildcats’ head coach due to the team’s performance on the field and for an off-field allegation levied against Rodriguez. According to Wolken, the university began an outside investigation into sexual harassment allegations made by a former employee.

The university revealed in its statement that the harassment allegations could not be substantiated, however, it did learn of information that caused it to become “concerned with the direction and climate of the football program.”

Below are statements from the University of Arizona.

After learning that he had been fired, Rodriguez released a statement regarding the decision, saying his was “disappointed” by the outcome. He also proclaimed his innocence regarding the sexual harassment allegation, saying he was found “innocent of any wrongdoing.”

But he also admitted to having a “consensual extramarital affair” in the past. He made all of his statements public through his Twitter account on Tuesday evening.

On the field, Rodriguez’s teams had been sputtering along the past three seasons, finishing 7-6 in 2015 and 2017 and going 3-9 in 2016. All that after posting his best record in the program in 2014, when the Wildcats finished the year 10-4.

After a 6-2 start to the 2017 campaign, Arizona lost four of its final five games, including a 38-35 loss to Purdue in the Foster Farms Bowl. Three of those losses were by two scores or more.

Rodriguez just completed his sixth season with the program, posting a 43-35 record, but he was a paltry 24-30 in Pac-12 games. He guided the Wildcats to five bowl games in six seasons, recording a 3-2 record in those postseason contests.

Prior to taking over at Arizona in 2012, Rodriguez was the head coach at Michigan for three seasons, where he was ousted after a 15-22 cumulative record and earning just one postseason bid. He was most successful at West Virginia, where he coached from 2001-2007, tallying a 60-26 record and winning at least 10 games in each of his final three seasons with the Mountaineers.

In 16 seasons as a head coach at the FBS level, Rodriguez is 118-83.
