Rolovich’s status has been uncertain much of the 2021 season, as Washington state requires all secondary and higher education personnel to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Oct. 18. Rolovich was seeking a religious exemption to not get vaccinated.
Rolovich was in his second season at WSU. The Cougars are 4-3 this season. Rolovich is 33-33 as a head coach in his time at Hawaii (28-27) and Washington State (5-6).
WSU defeated Stanford 34-31 on Saturday.

It is Oct. 18.
