Rich Rodriguez: ‘Life is good at the U of A’

Dec 17, 2012, 10:20 PM | Updated: 10:35 pm

Rich Rodriguez just finished his first football season as the head coach of the University of Arizona Wildcats.

His team surpassed all expectations by winning eight games, and following a Gildan New Mexico Bowl victory, the coach was, not surprisingly, pleased with the decision he made last November to take the Arizona job.

“This is a great place, I’m extremely happy, the family’s happy,” Rodriguez told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Monday.

Rodriguez said his children are doing well in school and said “life is good at the U of A” for the Rodriguez clan.
