Rich Rodriguez is 8-16 in two seasons as Michigan coach, and now the program is facing possible sanctions after an NCAA investigation revealed five potential major rules violations concerning in- and out-of-season practice time.
It's a first for the storied program.
The Detroit Free Press reported the possible violations last August after interviews with former players, current players and parents of players. The program faces probation, a loss of scholarships and a loss of practice time. A bowl ban also would be possible. Michigan has 90 days to respond and is expected to appear before the NCAA Infractions Committee in August.
