Washington State University is dropping head football coach Nick Rolovich and several assistant coaches who it says are not in compliance with Gov. Jay Inslee's order requiring state workers to have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Rolovich and assistant football coaches Ricky Logo, John Richardson, Craig Stutzmann, and Mark Weber are said to not be in compliance with the governor's proclamation, which prohibits state agencies from allowing workers to work after Monday if they have not gotten fully vaccinated.
A news release notes that the school "has initiated the separation process based on the terms of their respective contracts, effective immediately."
Rolovich, who had sought a religious exemption to the mandate, was the state's highest paid employee with earnings of over $3 million per year, according to the Associated Press. He didn't specify his reasons for not getting vaccinated, the AP said.
"This is a disheartening day for our football program. Our priority has been and will continue to be the health and well-being of the young men on our team. The leadership on our football team is filled with young men of character, selflessness and resiliency and we are confident these same attributes will help guide this program as we move forward," WSU athletic director Pat Chun said in a statement.
