WVU officials negotiating with Rodriguez

West Virginia University officials continue to work through negotiations with head football coach Rich Rodriguez on Friday morning, according to sources close to the situation.
Rodriguez is currently considering an offer from Alabama after the Crimson Tide fired former coach Mike Shula on November 26. Rodriguez has acknowledged meeting with Alabama athletic director Mal Moore Tuesday night in New York City.
Reports from various news sources have indicated that Rodriguez has accepted an offer from Alabama but at this point, those reports appear to be premature.
The Mountaineers will have a team meeting at 3:00 PM ET today and it is believed that Rodriguez will make his intentions known before that time.
