Attached is the contents of a letter I just wrote to our AD in support of Coach Rodriguez
As a proud Michigan graduate and individual who is responsible for
guiding, coaching, and mentoring a team, I'd like to voice my support
for Coach Rodriguez. As you know from your sailing career, character
is shown to the crew when sailing rough waters. It's a lesson that
I've learned personally and from observation. It's clear to me that
Coach Rodriguez has character that is second to none. Through one of
the most turbulent times in Michigan football history, there has been
no wavering in his commitment to the players, coaches, and fans. No
excuses were given by him at any time. Now, with accusations made
regarding violation of practice restrictions, he has shown his
character again and stands by his word in a public forum without
placing blame or making attacks on the accuser. I am proud to say he
is the football coach of the team I support.
Coach Rodriguez must produce results on the field. But with the solid
example he and his staff set for the student athletes and for the
general public, I believe the good results are inevitable.
Please pass along my support to Coach Rodriguez, his staff, and the
players. And please remind them all - It's great to be a Michigan
I'm sure the grammar police will be on this in 3... 2... 1...
