Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says he's not letting speculation about Rich Rodriguez's future change his timetable to evaluate the football coach.
Brandon reiterated Monday morning that he doesn't do performance reviews of coaches until their seasons are over.
That might make for another uncomfortable month for Rodriguez.
He helped the Wolverines qualify for a bowl — possibly the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28 — for the first time in his three seasons in charge of college football's winningest program.
The situation swirling around Rodriguez's status might turn into a circus at the team's banquet Thursday night because Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh plans to be there to be honored along with his 1985 teammates.
