Rodriguez to Bama?

ESPN is reporting that Alabama will decide to offer West Virginia head coach Rich Rodriguez its vacant coaching spot within the next 72 hours.

I read somewhere that not only has the Crimson Tide already offered Rodriguez a 7-year, $26-million deal, but Rich would formally accept the job on Thursday. But that's just a rumor for now.

UPDATE 12/7/06: The offer is in. Sources say Rodriguez has a 6-year, $12-million deal on the table, which would double his current contract.

UPDATE 12/8/06: Thanks, but no thanks. Rich wants to stay in the Big East.
