Tulane football coach Bob Toledo resigned on from his position on Tuesday, after accumulating a 15-40 record at at the school. Assistant coach Mark Hutson was named the interim head coach.

Tulane AD Rick Dickson said at a press conference that the coaching search has already began. Rumors are swirling that a former W.V. and Michigan head coach and current CBS Sports Network analysis, Rich Rodriguez, may be a candidate.

Would Rodriguez be a good fit for Tulane? Certainly.

Rich Rodriguez was the offensive coordinator for Tulane from 1997 to 1998. He led the school to its first ever 12-0 record in 1998 with quarterback Shaun King at the helm. His spread offense averaged 44.3 points per game at Tulane.

Rich Rodriguez would be returning to a prior recruiting stomping grounds where he’s probably familiar with the high school teams and coaches. Coaching at Tulane would be a lot less pressure than Michigan or W.V. because the school isn’t expecting immediate results.

If I’m AD Rick Dickson I would at least see if Rodriguez is interested in coming back to New Orleans to coach football. Rodriguez would bring the kind of headlines to a school desperate for a football makeover.
