WSU Coach Nick Rolovich Won't Attend Pac-12 Media Day Due to Vaccination Policy

Less than a week before Pac-12 media day in Los Angeles, Washington State coach Nick Rolovich announced via Twitter that he would not be attending the event in person because of the league's mandate that all attendees be vaccinated.

Rolovich is not vaccinated, and will participate in the event remotely.

“I have elected not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine for reasons which will remain private," Rolovich's statement read. "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. I will not comment further on my decision.
