RichRod's deal in AZ - Thursday, December 01, 2011 10:55 PM

http://www.azcentral.com/sports/ua/articles/2011/12/01/20111201arizona-wildcats-football-rich-rodriguez-contract.html
 
 


Rodriguez's five-year deal starts at $1.45 million per year in base pay and ends at $1.8 million with annual incentives for academic and athletic performance, attendance spikes and coach of the year awards. He will receive $300,000 per year from Nike.
 
The Arizona Daily Star says Rodriguez could owe the university up to $100,000 if he violates NCAA or Pac-12 rules.
If Rodriguez is fired without cause, the school owes him half his remaining pay. If he leaves before the five years are up, Rodriguez owes half his remaining pay.

 
Darn, Rich gets Nike stuff. I'm jealous.

I wish him well. I hope we get the oppturnity to play Arizona. I would love to see Michigan and Hoke take it to him. That being said I hope he is really successful. It would be cool if he took Arizona to their first Rose Bowl.

Did you guys read his "turd" analogy?  
 
Later, Rodriguez said there is only one type of guy he doesn’t want on his team. “One thing I assure you. There will not be anybody in this program that I think is a turd,” Rodriguez said. “You know what a turd is? A turd is a bad guy. If you’re a good guy and you work hard, I can put up with a lot of stuff. But if you’re a turd…”

Just heard him getting blasted for that on espn zaco.
 
Does he really think that's an admirable way to talk to kids he just met and wants to lead, and in front of reporters?
 
I guess he's still not one for good first impressions and intends to remain a PR handful.

This is one thing I will most definitely not miss and that is RichRod's lack of PR skills...

 

GO BLUE!!!

Had $2 million worked into the contract for assistants, not bad.

Turd...really? Man alive am I happy that he isn't roaming around Schembechler Hall anymore.

Go Blue! Beat Ohio!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

Well, isnt this gonna get interesting....Looks like the Arizona AD had an ace up his sleeve. He already knew that an UM/AZ game was in future.  I am not looking forward to this match up.

I am not "scared" of RR. I like the guy and dont hold any ill will. It would be a bitter sweet victory if we won.

I loathe Rich Rod. He's an attention whore and frankly, doesn't deserve the attention of a Michigan/Arizona game.

Go Blue!!

P.S. The agreement doesn't start until 2017, so odds are Rich Rod won't be there anyways.

Well, according to Dave Brandon, we will likely be scheduling PAC 12 before then.  Dont you think AZ will be pushing for a game in a couple of years. YOU BET!

Hell will freeze over before Brandon schedules a game with AZ, there are 11 other teams to choose from.

A Michigan/Arizona game doesn't get scheduled until 2024 and beyond IMO. Brandon would have to be crazy.

Have to figure we`ll be playing home and home series with the Pac 12. Theoretically we could wait 20+ years before playing Arizona.

Bingo. Brandon will want no part of a UM/RR game... Although he did reschedule Appy State

Brandon is also a savvy businessman.  Think of the buzz that  would be generated from such a match up

Common sense says no to scheduling AZ.  Enter: Dave Brandon.  Exit: common sense.  This is a perfect opportunity for a new jersey and to play the game under the lights on a Thursday night.  Brandon can't pass THAT up.  (BIG roll of the eyes)

Not the kind of buzz that Brandon wants. The game would be a spectacle and God forbid Arizona win the game.................

You don't think the App State game isn't gonna get hyped in the same way an AZ game would?  I can't believe he scheduled them again. I would have rather played another MAC school.  God forbid we loose to them AGAIN!   That would be truly embarrassing.

No, not even close.
 
No one will mind talking about App State. There are no uncomfortable questions to avoid or topics that are off limits. In all honestly I think Brandon would rather deal with the backlash of a second loss to App State than a loss to the coach he fired.

That's the difference between Arizona and Michigan and part of why it's a better fit there than here. Multiple 8-5 seasons get you put on the hot seat in A2, it gets you a raise in AZ.
 
Granted there is also a difference in resources.

We just suffered through a 8-5 and then 7-6 season, at no point have I gotten the impression Hoke is on the hot seat in any way, shape or form, other than with the fans.
