MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -West Virginia University's $4 million lawsuit against ex-football coach Rich Rodriguez is headed for mediation, with the goal of resolving the dispute by Aug. 1.
But WVU attorney Jeff Wakefield says Judge Robert Stone's order is standard, and he thinks it's unlikely mediation will help.
Wakefield says the university remains firm in its position that Rodriguez owes $4 million under the contract in place when he resigned in December to take Michigan's head coaching job.
If mediation doesn't end the dispute, Stone will hear motions on Nov. 10.
