WSU football coach elects to not receive COVID-19 vaccine

PULLMAN, Wash. — In a statement on Twitter, Washington State University (WSU) head football coach Nick Rolovich said he has elected to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

“As the Pac-12 Conference has required that all in-person participants at next week’s 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 said.

WSU president Kirk Schulz announced in April that all in-person students for the 2021-2022 academic year require the COVID-19 vaccination.

Rolovich said he chose to not receive the vaccine for reasons “which will remain private.”
