It looks like Rich Rodriguez is staying at Arizona after all.

Rodriguez interviewed for the South Carolina job as was considered a front-runner for some close to the search. He was offered the job, it appears, but turned it down.

Former Florida coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator this season at Auburn, and South Florida coach Willie Taggert also have interviewed for the job. Taggert went back home to Tampa and got a contract extension from USF.

Rodriguez had been an offensive coordinator at Clemson before being a head coach at West Virginia, Michigan and Arizona.
