NEW YORK (AP) – Fired Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez has landed a college football broadcasting job at CBS Sports Network.

The cable channel said Tuesday that Rodriguez would be a gameand studio analyst for the upcoming season. He will team with announcer Dave Ryan and also be part of the network’s weekly studio show.

He was a guest analyst for the channel during its national signing day coverage in February.

The network formerly known as CBS College Sports shows Mountain West and Conference USA games and is in fewer than 40 percent of homes with televisions.

Rodriguez spent three seasons at Michigan before he was dismissed in January.

The ouster came after blowout losses to Ohio State and to Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. His record was  16-22, and the school was hit with NCAA sanctions for the first time because of rules violations while he was coach.
