    Default Rodriquez to Pay the $4 Mil

    Looks like Rich Rodriquez has settled his $4 million buyout clause claim from WVU and will pay the contract requirement over a period of years. The settlement came rather quickly after attornies for the West Virginia filed to required the UM President and AD to be deposed regarding statements they may have made about funding the buyout.
    Obviously, UM didn't want to involve the President who was with AD Bill Martin when they made the offer Rodriquez in Ohio last December. Coincidentally, UM has the same $4mil buyout clause in their contract with Rodriquez.

    UM will pay WVU $2.5 mil now, plus Rodriquez's legal expenses. Rodriquez will pay WVU $500K Jan '10, '11 and '12.

    Watch, Rodriquez will get a revamped contract in Jan '10 to cover his obligation.
