    Power. Divorce is great and all in these situations where she'd get half... but it'd be drawn out even with conclusive evidence. Lawyers take their pound of flesh. And while you get a big delivery of water all at once, the faucet is shut off.
    Or she can stay and hang it over his head for the rest of their lives knowing he'll always be held captive and the option to divorce for 50% will always be there.
    Course, the faucet is probably permanently shut off anyway. RichRod will be looking for work as an insurance agent soon enough... and I predict that's when she pulls the trigger.

    Lol, Rich Rod won't ever have to sell insurance, he'll get another job soon. And at the least,ESPN will hire him as an analyst. Kiffin screwed up an NFL B.C. job, 2 elite college HC gigs, and after another year at FAU he'll get a shot at another tier 1-2 school. And this is with all the rumors of his divorce, hooking up with coeds,hooking up with boosters wives and possibly even Sabans daughter.
    Lol. Hell be fine financially either ways

    Kiffin didn't write a manual on breaking Title IX. Nor does RichRod have Kiffin's daddy. Dude is done in College. Maybe he can land an assistant gig in the NFL or an analyst as you suggest. But those aren't surefire either.
    As far as finances... depends how he's been spending it. A lot of these guys, coaches and players alike, leverage against their income... and when that plummets they're in Bankruptcy Court fast. His wife looks like the kind that'd buy a multi-million mansion in 'Zona ... and he apparently likes to live it up too... I'm gonna predict he's the type for whom a big payday is just an enabler to spend even more.

    While I don’t know that the manual was about breaking Title IX, the likely off-color remark / joke, as it were, is what I think ultimately dooms him from collegiate employment opportunities.

    There’s no doubt that some real slime balls are on the sidelines... revenue and non-revenue sports alike. And some of these slime balls carry liabilities that could cost their progrms dearly when it comes to NCAA infractions.

    That said, I cannot believe that a Risk Officer in any university would be OK with the Title IX reference here. Should there be even a hint at a Title IX issue within a mile of this guy a school is risking far more than a football program’s revenue. If SMU got a death penalty — it was only football. A Title IX infraction that leads to a university losing federal funding (at any level) jeopardizes the entire institution. Recall the greatest danger to State Penn wasn’t scholarship reductions... it was the Title IX issues.

    Aside from that, there’s going to be plenty of faculty in support of Title IX at any school he would consider who wouldn’t take kindly to the off-color remark. I can’t imagine many ADs wanting to deal with that issue given the number of equally qualified alternatives sans baggage.

    TL;DR: I wouldn’t **** that whore with _your_ dick.

    I think if you give it 1 or 2 years, he'll say (via a spokesman) that he's repented/taken classes/etc and he'll be back as an OC or something....he's still relatively young at 54. Someone will hire him...

    Rich Rodriguez releases statement as additional claim against his alleged behavior is filed

    On Saturday, the same woman, Melissa Wilhelmsen, filed an additional $7.5 million claim against the University of Arizona, saying the school is liable for its former employee’s behavior.

    From the suit, according to the Arizona Daily Star:

    The document says that Wilhelmsen and her husband also have claims against Rodriguez for slander, defamation and false light, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress stemming from Rodriguez and his wife’s conduct after his firing — including “statements to football players at a team meeting on January 9, 2018.” Rich and Rita Rodriguez spoke to the players in a team meeting run by interim head coach Marcel Yates on that date. It was not immediately clear if any additional legal action had been filed.

    Rodriguez on Sunday released a statement, essentially calling Wilhelmsen’s bluff.

    In legal filing, Rich Rodriguez claiming sexual harassment lawsuit is an extortion attempt


    Though it actually wasn’t what pushed him out of his job, a sexual harassment lawsuit is what got the ball rolling to push Rich Rodriguez out at Arizona.

    He’s now saying that suit is an extortion attempt.

    Rodriguez’s former assistant Melissa Wilhelmsen accused Rodriguez of verbally and physically harassing her, centering on a number of instances in which she says he made passes at her breasts or allowed others to do so in his presence. Rodriguez has formally denied all such instances, using as evidence that no other woman at any of his other coaching stops ever made such complaints about him.

    But, according to a filing Rodriguez’s attorneys made with Arizona’s Attorney General’s office, which was obtained by the Arizona Republic, the heart of Rodriguez’s grievance centers around money. Wilhelmsen’s suit seeks a $7.5 million payment from Rodriguez, and the suit claims that Wilhelmen’s representation made a thinly-veiled extortion attempt at getting such money. First, Rodriguez’s side says it was told it would take “millions of dollars” to make the case go away, and then said that Wilhelmen’s formal demand letter, which requested the $7.5 million be paid by Dec. 26, was an extortion tactic, since Arizona was slated to play in the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 27.

    “Demanding the payment the day before the Bowl Game was vicious, cut-throat, and explainable only as the ultimate threat to extort Coach and Mrs. Rodriguez of the $7.5 million,” the filing said.

    College coaching ain’t exactly the place of high morals. RichRod was going to get another gig, just didn’t realize it would be so soon. If you can get Ws, college don’t give a damn, no matter what fans want to think. And I’ll bet Ole Miss will welcome him with open arms

    Given that they canned Hugh Freeze for a pattern of calling an escort service, this is a fairly amazing hire. Would be even more amazing if they decided to bring in Zach Smith to coach the WRs ...
