With Michigan hiring Jim Harbaugh on Tuesday, you knew that someone was going to ask Rich Rodriguez about it at the Fiesta Bowl head coaches press conference.

Here's what he had to say:

"I didn't hear that. Really? What's he getting paid? Gosh, you just caught me off-guard there. I didn't think I'd get a Michigan question. I'm happy for Jim. And Michigan has great support without question. They've got tremendous fan support, great resources, and it looks like that's why they targeted Jim from day one, and they're probably thrilled that he's coming back. I don't know him, but I know he wins. He had great success there as a player. He's had great success as a coach too, and I'm sure they're excited"
