The latest on Rich Rodriguez and a possible meeting with the University of Michigan.

West Virginia head football coach Rich Rodriguez and his wife Rita were seen exiting a plane at Morgantown's Hart Field Airport early Friday evening. Flight records indicate the plane had flown to Morgantown from Toledo, Ohio.

Many outlets linked Rodriguez to a meeting earlier today in Toledo with officials from the University of Michigan, presumably regarding the vacant head coaching position in Ann Arbor left open by the retirement of longtime Wolverine mentor Lloyd Carr.

Rodriguez, in his seventh season as head coach at his alma mater, later admitted to a WVMetroNews reporter that he spent several hours in Toledo earlier today, but would only go so far as to say he was meeting with his financial agents. When asked repeatedly whether or not Michigan officials were present at the meeting, Rodriguez declined to comment, only saying that he did not comment on vacant jobs.

West Virginia began practice tonight in preparation for the January 2 Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma. Rodriguez is scheduled to appear at a WVU press conference tomorrow morning which was scheduled several days ago in conjunction with West Virginia's Fiesta Bowl preparations.
