Who is Nick Rolovich ?

Washington State University football coach Nick Rolovich was fired from his $ 3 million-a-year job after he refused to receive the COVID vaccine.

Nicholas Robert Rolovich is a former American football coach and player, who was most recently the head football coach at Washington State University. Rolovich majored in economics at the University of Hawaii, and received a master’s degree at New Mexico Highlands University. Wikipedia

Rolovich, 42, tried to cite a religious exemption for the vaccine, but was fired after not receiving the vaccine before the Oct. 18 WSU deadline for staff.

The sports coach was raised Catholic, although he declined to comment last week when he still adheres to the faith.

Some Catholics have criticized the vaccine because it is made using cell lines derived from aborted fetuses. But the Catholic Church itself, including Pope Francis, has endorsed the vaccines and urged the faithful to receive the injections.

He wasn’t the only team member to be fired, as other unvaccinated assistant coaches were also fired from their posts.

Rolovich is believed to be of the Catholic faith where some members have refused to get the vaccine

Rolovich had applied for the exemption after Cougar’s 34-31 win over Stanford on Saturday.

“I’m not very happy with the way it happened,” Rolovich told The Seattle Times.

‘I hope that no player I coach has to wake up and feel the way I did today.

“I don’t think he was malicious, but to be honest, it wasn’t much of a wake-up call.”

He previously said in July that his reason for not receiving the vaccine was “private,” but asserted that he respected the workers who were receiving the vaccine and praised the success of Washington state in administering them.

Rolovich had later claimed that he would receive the vaccine, following the announcement of Washington Governor Jay Inslee’s term in August due to the increase in cases in the state.

Washington State University President Kirk Schulz

However, the mandate exempted people with medical and religious problems from receiving the vaccine.

In addition to the state mandate, Rolovich’s workplace also required that all workers be vaccinated without exception.

“It certainly skews the perception of our message,” Washington State University President Kirk Schulz told the New York Times.

“In most colleges, people pay attention to what the college president, the soccer coach, the basketball coach, and the athletic director have to say; thats the reality.

“People view them as leaders because they are very visible and highly compensated.

“It doesn’t help when there are people who are contrary to the direction we are going.”

June Jones, Rolovich’s coach at the University of Hawaii, also commented on his former player’s vaccination status prior to his firing.wikipedia

“I don’t know exactly, but I do know that he filed a religious exemption, and they haven’t decided yet,” Jones told USA Today.

He believes the way he believes, and he doesn’t think he needs it. It’s like I said: it’s not about him anymore.

“It’s about the people around you and the credibility of the university, and he should pick one for the team.”

Vaccine distributors like Johnson & Johnson said they used fetal cell lines

Vaccine distributors like Johnson & Johnson said they used fetal cell lines, as did Pfizer and Moderna that used them in the early stages of testing.

Fetal cell lines are also present in everyday medications like Tylenol and Pepto Bismol.

“Concern about the possible use of fetal cells to develop vaccines is not, by itself, reason enough to grant an exemption,” said WSU spokesman Phil Weiler.

Despite Rolovich’s stance on the vaccine, his players have praised his coach regardless of his personal decisions.

“Players, we don’t have a problem with Coach Rolo,” starting quarterback Jayden de Laurade Laura said.

‘We have no problem with any of our coaches. We respect his decisions. I feel like it’s just the guys covering for us, they’re trying to dig a hole in our Cougar football team. ‘
