The vaccine mandates instituted by Democrats have cost yet another high-profile state employee this job.
This time, Washington State Head Coach Nick Rolovich was the casualty.
Rolovich refused to take the vaccine, reportedly for religious reasons, but he was apparently denied his exemption request.
No Jab for Me
As a state-funded university, the mandate put in place covered employees of Washington State University.
Rolovich also happens to be the highest-paid state employee, raking in about $3 million per year.
He had been the only coach in the PAC-12 not to receive the vaccine.
However, he had been wearing a mask on the sidelines during games.
Rolovich had finally seemed to get the program turned around, coming to the school two years ago after a successful run at Hawaii.
In a pandemic shortened 2020 season, Washington State had gone 1-3, but after a bit of a rocky start, emulating the 1-3 start to last season, Washington State has ripped off three consecutive wins.
The team is now 3-2 in conference play, having beaten Stanford last week, and 4-3 overall.
A veteran state trooper also made news this week after resigning with more than two decades of service for the same reason.
As more of these deadlines approach, this will be a far too common theme, especially when the military deadlines hit, all of which are fast approaching.
