It's nothing personal, coach.
But the signs proclaiming Grant Town, West Virginia, as the hometown of soon-to-be-former West Virginia football coach Rich Rodriguez have come down.
Mayor Robert Riggs ordered two signs removed less than 24 hours after Rodriguez announced he was leaving to take a job as Michigan's new football coach. The signs proclaimed Grant Town as the "Home of WVU Head Football Coach Rich Rodriguez."
Riggs says he wasn't doing it out of anger -- but to pre-empt vandalism or theft by outraged Mountaineers fans. Someone wrapped a chain around one of the signs last year, pulled it out of the ground with a vehicle and stole it when he was mulling an offer from Alabama.
It was returned when he signed a new contract with WVU.
