Both sides in a lawsuit involving former West Virginia football coach Rich Rodriguez' 4 million-dollar buyout clause have scored key victories in court.
A judge granted a motion by the coach's lawyers to produce evidence to support their claim that Rodriguez was fraudulently induced to sign his contract.
And the school was granted a motion requesting any documents related to Rodriguez' hiring and contract discussions with the University of Michigan.
A motion to expedite the trial was denied.
Rodriguez resigned in December after seven seasons with the Mountaineers to take the head coaching job at Michigan, where he also agreed to a 4 million-dollar buyout. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
