First year defensive coordinator Scott Shafer has resigned (forced?) from Rodriguez's staff. According to Chris Balas, senior editor at The Wolverine, rumors have been circulating. Although, this is news to this blogger. This quote from Rich Rodriguez:
"Scott and I agreed that moving in a different direction was in the best interest of the program. I appreciate Scott's hard work on behalf of Michigan football the past year. He is a good football coach, a good person and a true professional. We wish him well in the future."So, just as fast as he got here, he's gone. No word on who his potential replacement may be or when that news might be forthcoming. No doubt, this news will have some impact on recruiting. I have a feeling this story may be the focus of this blog, and many others like this, for days/weeks to come.
