Michigan's Rodriguez back at work

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez returned to work Monday, two days after a bowl game loss that heightened speculation about his future with the Wolverines.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon plans to meet with Rodriguez soon and expects to have something to say about the situation later this week.

Rodriguez's third season ended Saturday with a school-record 38-point loss to Mississippi State. It dropped his overall record to 15-22 with college football's winningest program.

Messages seeking comment were left for Rodriguez on Monday.
