Former Washington State Football Coach Appeals Firing

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – Attorneys for former Washington State coach Nick Rolovich are appealing his firing for refusing to get the coronavirus vaccine.

They contend school officials did not conduct a fair process to determine whether Rolovich should receive a religious exemption to a state mandate that all state employees must be vaccinated.

Attorneys Brian Fahling and Eric Kniffen sent a letter to university athletic director Pat Chun laying out their appeal of Rolovich’s firing for just cause.
