Spokane, Washington (AP) —Washington has fired football coach Nick Lorovich for denying the state’s obligation to vaccinate all employees with COVID-19.

It’s according to someone familiar with the decision that spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, as the university hadn’t announced it and no one was allowed to speak publicly about the decision.

Democratic Washington Governor Jay Inslee has set a Monday deadline to risk thousands of state officials, including Cougars coaches, being vaccinated against the coronavirus or losing their jobs.

Lorovich said he would not be vaccinated, but did not specify the reason.

According to, some assistant coaches have also finished CBS Sports.

Washington (4-3) will play BYU on Saturday.
