Rich Rodriguez joins CBS College for Signing Day

Posted by Chip Patterson

Former Michigan and West Virginia head coach Rich Rodriguez knows his recruiting.  Despite his 15-22 record in Ann Arbor, Rodriguez did bring in three straight top 20 recruiting classes.  His list of talented prospects he has recruited and coached is more than impressive, including most notably in recent years the likes of Pat White, Steve Slaton, and quarterback Denard Robinson.  Rodriguez has been on five different FBS coaching staffs, and has left his mark at each stop along the way.

Which is why we are proud to announce that Rodriguez will be joining our multi-faceted coverage of National Signing Day here at CBS. CBS College Sports Network will be offering seven hours of live television programming featuring recruiting expert Tom Lemming, Rodriguez, and former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer giving instant updates and analysis as the nation's biggest recruits sign their LOI's on the New Years Day of the offseason.

In addition to the television coverage, keep it locked here at CBSSports.com all day on February 2 as we will be providing breaking news and analysis as soon as pens hit paper.
