ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Rich Rodriguez admits he usually doesn't sleep well, tossing and turning between nap-like stretches.
He could be forgiven for having one of his more restless nights.
The embattled Michigan coach met Tuesday with athletic director Dave Brandon and the two were expected to meet again Wednesday morning to discuss the coach's future with college football's winningest program.
A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Brandon had not decided as of Tuesday night whether to fire Rodriguez, who is 15-22 after three seasons at Michigan. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the details of the evaluation were supposed to remain confidential.
Michigan defensive back James Rogers said a Tuesday night team meeting, something Rodriguez usually does the night before classes resume each semester, was postponed until Wednesday afternoon. School officials declined comment about Rodriguez's job status.
"The definitive voice on this matter is Dave Brandon," associate athletic director Dave Ablauf said in a statement. "And he has not and will not speak publicly until a final decision has been made."
If Rodriguez is fired, Michigan would owe him $2.5 million to buy out the final three years of his contract.
