Rolovich Won't Attend Pac-12 Event Due To Vaccine Mandate

Washington State coach Nick Rolovich said he will not participate on site at next weeks Pac12 media day in Los Angeles after choosing not to receive a COVID19 vaccine.

PULLMAN, Wash.: Washington State coach Nick Rolovich said he will not participate on site at next weeks Pac-12 media day in Los Angeles after choosing not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

As the Pac-12 Conference has required that all in-person participants at next weeks Pac-12 football media day be fully vaccinated I will participate remotely and look forward to talking about our football team and the incredible young men in our program, Rolovich wrote in a statement posted Wednesday on Twitter. I have elected not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine for reasons which will remain private. While I have made my own decision I respect that every individual including our coaches, staff and student-athletes can make his or her own decision regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.

Rolovich is about to begin his second season as the head coach at Washington State after spending the previous four seasons at Hawaii. Washington State played just four games last season and had two games included the Apple Cup with rival Washington canceled due to COVID-19 issues.

Washington State has said all students engaging in activities on campus for the 2021-22 academic year must provide proof of vaccination with exemptions for medical, religious or personal reasons.
