Former Washington State football coach Nick Rolovich's termination for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccination was unlawful and an attack on his Catholic faith, his attorney said Wednesday.

Attorney Brian Fahling also said in a statement that Rolovich intends to take legal action and that the litigation will detail what the attorney called athletic director Pat Chun's "animus towards Coach Rolovich's sincerely held religious beliefs" and his dishonesty at the expense of the former coach.

Rolovich and four of his assistants were fired Monday for not complying with the governor's mandate that all state employees be vaccinated against the coronavirus. The attorney said Rolovich was escorted by campus police to his car and not allowed to speak to the team or visit his office after his dismissal.
