GRANT TOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Relatives of Rich Rodriguez have been
harassed and threatened in the three weeks since his resignation as
West Virginia football coach.

His mother, Arleen Rodriguez, says her teenage grandson received a death threat and found other harassing notes taped to his locker at East Fairmont High School. And she says her 12-year-old granddaughter had to be escorted to classes.

Mountaineer fans, furious over Rodriguez's December 16th decision to accept the coaching job at Michigan, also vandalized his home near Morgantown, hanging signs on a fence and tossing a mailbox in the yard.

The backlash has been even more venomous on the Facebook social
networking site, where dozens of groups with profanity-laced names
have formed, devoted to wishing ill for Rodriguez and his family.
