ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said he has made "some progress" in the team's search for a new defensive coordinator but would not elaborate Saturday night.
The Wolverines went 3-9 last season -- the most losses in the storied program's history -- and missed a bowl game for the first time in 34 years.
The defense, especially the front four, was expected to be Michigan's strength in Rodriguez's first season.
Scott Shafer resigned in mid-December after his first season with the Wolverines. He coordinated a defense that gave up 347 points, the most in school history.
Rodriguez and his family were attending the men's basketball team's game against Ohio State.
