I heard last weekend(from a current Michigan employee) suggestions that a former University employee, in the athletic department, had an agenda to see Ron English chosen as the coach to follow Lloyd. When Martin chose not to go in this direction, said individual became incensed, upset with both Martin and with Martin's choice for football coach, Rich Rod. This individual supposedly has worked behind the scenes to submarine both Martin and RR. Further, this individual's wife is reported to be in a supervisory capacity on the staff of the Freep, providing a bully pulpit to bash both Martin and RichRod. Lastly, iirc, this individual is African American, making it very sensitive and impolitic for anyone associated with the University to criticize him directly. His goal was partially to see English as the first African American coach at Michigan. Lastly, because English was in the running for the head coach position, it was impossible for RichRod to realistically have him continue as part of his staff.
Can any of you verify any of these comments? If these comments are true, what happens next?
