With Rich Rodriguez's status as Michigan football coach still in limbo, Plant offensive tackle and Wolverines commit Tony Posada is paying close attention to the news.

If Rodriguez is fired, Posada, who committed to Michigan in August, said Tuesday evening that he'd have to reconsider his options, but he wouldn't de-commit until he had a chance to meet the new Michigan coach.

"If I heard (Rodriguez) was gone, I would actually have to think about it," Posada said. "I would have to see who the coach is first, talk to him and make my decision off that. If I like the new coach, then it's no big deal. If I feel like there's a little tension or If I don't feel comfortable with him and how things are, I would probably open it up."

Posada has an official visit to Ann Arbor scheduled for Jan. 21, his only scheduled visit.

When Posada committed to Michigan, he chose the Wolverines over USF, Rutgers, Wake Forest and Texas Tech.

The Detroit Free-Press reported Tuesday evening that Michigan had fired Rodriguez, but the school later issued a statement denying the coach was out.
