Fired Michigan coach Rodriguez hired by CBS

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Fired Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez has landed a college football broadcasting job at CBS Sports.

The network announced Tuesday that Rodriguez will be a game and studio analyst for the upcoming season. He will team with play-by-play announcer Dave Ryan and also be part of CBS' weekly studio show.

He was a guest analyst for CBS during its National Signing Day coverage in February.

Rodriguez spent three seasons at Michigan before he was dismissed in January. The ouster came after a blowout loss to Ohio State to close the regular season and another to Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl.

His record was 16-22, and the school was hit with NCAA sanctions for the first time because of rules violations while he was coach.
