The Tuscaloosa News is reporting that UA officials plan to announce Rodriguez as the new head coach today:
The announcement is expected after negotiations with Rodriguez' representatives produced substantial agreement on contractual issues on Thursday afternoon, sources close to those negotiations told The Tuscaloosa News. However, Rodriguez -- who was travelling back to West Virginia from Florida on Thursday night and was delayed en route by inclement weather -- still had to sign off on the offer, the sources said.
One thing is for certain: there is no stopping him. Rod will soon be here, and we here at RollBamaRoll welcome our new
overlord head coach. We'd like to remind him that as trusted blog personalities, we can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in his underground sugar caves write glowing features about his coaching genius.
