Put an end to the speculation of Rich Rodriguez leaving Arizona for South Carolina:
Happy and honored to be an Arizona Wildcat!! Bear Down!!— Rich Rodriguez (@CoachRodAZ) December 6, 2015
It appears that Rodriguez was at least offered the South Carolina job though based on what Greg Byrne tweeted out immediately after this:
Great news! @CoachRodAZ did not commit to the offer from S. Carolina. He's an Arizona Wildcat. #BearDown— Greg Byrne (@Greg_Byrne) December 6, 2015
SOURCE: RichRod was offered #Gamecock job. Mulled it over the flight home. Realized he wanted to stay at #Zona & has more work to do there.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) December 6, 2015
We will find out more on Sunday as the Arizona Wildcats hold their annual team banquet. Both Rodriguez and Byrne are scheduled to have media availability Sunday afternoon before the banquet begins.
This is some top notch fire from Byrne directed right at Ray Tanner though. Nicely done.
