OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - was the first to report that former Arizona, Michigan, and West Virginia head coach Rich Rodriguez will be the next offensive coordinator at Ole Miss.

Reports surfaced on Saturday that Rodriguez had interviewed for the position.

Arizona fired Rodriguez in January, 2018 after conducting a three month internal investigation into sexual harrasment claims against Rodriguez.  The school could not substantiate the report, but decided to fire Rodriguez citing concern with the direction and climate of the football program.
