ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Rich Rodriguez does not expect to coach wide receivers Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington or quarterback Ryan Mallett at Michigan.
Manningham and Arrington will skip their senior seasons and Mallett will transfer, according to Rodriguez.
``Those are the indications I've gotten,'' Rodriguez told The Associated Press on Tuesday night. ``I've talked to all three at various times recently. I talked to Adrian today, and he told me he's leaning toward going pro.
``We wish all of them the best.''
When told what Rodriguez said, Jim Mallett insisted his son has not made a decision.
``Coach knows more than I do, I guess,'' Jim Mallett told the AP.
Rodriguez later told reporters Manningham and Mallett did not attend a team meeting Monday.
Manningham might be a first-round pick after catching 72 passes for 1,174 yards and 12 touchdowns and running 19 times for 119 yards and a score last season. The 6-foot, 178-pound native of Ohio had 65 receptions for 1,136 yards and 15 touchdowns during his first two seasons for the Wolverines.
Arrington caught 67 passes for 882 yards and eight touchdowns last season. The 6-3, 195-pound native of Iowa had nine receptions for 153 yards and two scores in Michigan's 41-35 Capital One Bowl victory over Florida.
Mallett played in 11 games as a freshman, filling in for Chad Henne when he was injured. He was 61-of-141 for 892 yards with seven TDs and five interceptions.
He enrolled at Michigan a year ago after being voted Texas' Class 4A offensive player of the year. The 6-foot-7, 252-pound quarterback threw for more than 2,500 yards and 27 scores as a senior at Texarkana High School, where he was a three-year starter.
