Ex-Washington State WR files lawsuit against school, head coach after dismissal from program over COVID concerns

Sep 2, 2021

Former Washington State football receiver Kassidy Woods has filed a federal lawsuit against WSU and its head coach, Nick Rolovich, accusing them of breach of contract, violating his civil rights and covering up COVID-19 cases in athletics.

Woods, who recently transferred from WSU to Northern Colorado, left the team last year after a public spat with Rolovich stemming from his decision to opt out of the 2020 season because of health concerns related to the pandemic, according to the lawsuit.
