Former Washington State football coach Nick Rolovich has filed a lawsuit against the university, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and WSU athletic director Pat Chun seeking damages related to his dismissal last year for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Rolovich had previously filed a claim against the university, which was a prerequisite for suing a state agency. The 32-page complaint — which was filed Friday, according to Rolovich's lawyer, Brian Fahling — contains eight counts, including breach of contract, discrimination against religion, wrongful withholding of wages and violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act as well as the First and 14th Amendments.

Unlike the claim, which indicated Rolovich would seek $25 million, the complaint did not specify how much money he is seeking. However, it does request damages to include the loss of past and future income, liquidated damages from his employment, punitive damages and other costs related to bringing the lawsuit.
