Default Ex-West Virginia fundraiser jabs Rodriguez

He says coach made up racism allegation against him, then offered him job at U-M for silence.

A former fundraiser for West Virginia claims Michigan's new coach, Rich Rodriguez, concocted an allegation of racism against him, then offered him a job at U-M in exchange for his silence.
Larry Aschebrook, who was executive director of the Mountaineer Athletic Club, the athletic department's private fundraising arm, said in a sworn affidavit Rodriguez and one of his top assistants, Calvin Magee, invented a racist incident.
Their purpose was to aid Rodriguez in WVU's $4 million lawsuit against him, Aschebrook says. Rodriguez signed a contract containing a buyout clause for that amount but now says the university broke its terms as well as other verbal promises made to him.

In memory of my brother Michael, who gave me my love of sports. I will miss you!
