MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -Rich Rodriguez says the actions of West Virginia University, not a better offer, forced him to resign and take the football coaching job at Michigan.
Rodriguez filed his official response to WVU's $4 million lawsuit against him Friday, restating many of the same arguments his camp has been making since Dec. 18.
Rodriguez said the university broke the terms of his contract first, and that the school has since set out to smear him. He said the demand that he pay a $4 million buyout clause was unreasonable.
He also argued that WVU lacks authority to file the lawsuit, which should have been approved by the Board of Governors first. He also said the lawsuit should include the school's fundraising body, the WVU Foundation, and the state Attorney General's office.
