Arizona football head coach RichRod turns down South Carolina gig
Arizona football head coach Rich Rodriguez will continue to be the Wildcat head coach.
On Saturday night, he turned down South Carolina, who offered their head coaching vacancy to Rodriguez.
Happy and honored to be an Arizona Wildcat!! Bear Down!!— Rich Rodriguez (@CoachRodAZ) December 6, 2015
The announcement went viral as Arizona fans and staff took to Twitter to post their reactions.
Many analysts predicted Rodriguez would be the next South Carolina head coach, including the ESPN College GameDay crew.
Rodriguez surely does have much work to do as the Wildcats prepare for a possible Bowl game after their 6-6 season.
Rodriguez will speak with the media on Sunday afternoon to talk about Arizona's bowl game announcement.
