ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Two people familiar with the situation say embattled Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez is still meeting with his boss.

The meeting between Rodriguez and athletic director Dave Brandon stretched late into Tuesday afternoon amid two reports that Rodriguez will be fired.

Both people spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss Rodriguez’s job status.

Rodriguez’s third season ended Saturday with a 38-point loss to Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. It dropped his overall record to 15-22 with college football’s winningest program.

Players are expected to attend a previously scheduled team meeting Tuesday night. Rodriguez traditionally holds the meeting the night before classes resume each semester.
