Bama Got Served

Hold the phone...Rich Rodriguez is staying at West Virginia. According to a West Virginia television station" (remains to be proven if they do exist) reported that Mountaineers athletic officials were looking to counter Alabama's offer. Citing sources, WBOY-TV said the school and Rodriguez's representatives were actively negotiating.

ESPN's Joe Schad that Alabama extended a six-year, $12 million offer to Rodriguez and that Alabama would pay West Virginia a $2 million buyout. The proposed deal would make Rodriguez among the top 10 highest-paid college coaches in the nation, doubling his current salary.

No word yet on what went down but this could get ugly in the media. I wonder how Miami feels knowing their #1 pick is back on the market a day after they announce a new coach.
