Desperate times for a desperate man.
Rich Rodriguez, who has won all of eight games in two seasons as Michigan coach, announced the signing Wednesday of Demar Dorsey, a defensive back with some unwelcome baggage.
Dorsey, from Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., was charged with two felonies a month apart in Broward County in 2008. He was arrested July 21, 2008 and charged with robbery with a deadly weapon. He was 16 at the time but was charged as an adult. Bond was set at $50,000. Dorsey went to trial that November and was acquitted, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The second charge of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling came on Aug. 22, 2008. Bond was set at $3,500. Prosecutors dismissed the charge that December but online records did not indicate why, according to the newspaper.
