Jay Inslee, America’s Governor, has fired an entitled millionaire who thinks the rules shouldn’t apply to him:
Nick Rolovich came to Washington State as a fun-loving coach, known nationally for his off-the-wall antics and an ability to win.
Less than two years and 11 games later, Rolovich is apparently gone, and will be known nationally as the football coach who lost his job for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Rolovich had applied for a religious exemption to the mandate that all state employees be vaccinated by Oct. 18, but his tenure at WSU reportedly came to end Monday.
According to multiple reports, Rolovich was terminated for cause along with other unvaccinated WSU assistant coaches. The Oregonian’s John Canzano first reported the news Monday afternoon.
Further details weren’t immediately available, but ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura said defensive coordinator Jake Dickert is expected to be named interim head coach.
The Cougars were 5-6 during Rolovich’s 1½ seasons as WSU’s coach.
While “Make America Great Again” is in a sense a religion, it is not one the state will or should be willing to recognize.
