Arizona's Rich Rodriguez sued for breach of contract by former agency
Rich Rodriguez is being sued for breach of contract by Creative Artists Agency, according to Kyle Bonagura of ESPN.
The agency used to represent the Arizona head coach and they are claiming Rodriguez owes them $230,250 for work they did. According to the lawsuit, CAA negotiated his deals for the Wildcats coaching job and an on-air role with CBS.
CAA is claiming Rodriguez agreed to pay them a percentage of both deals but he ended the partnership in 2015.
"Coach Rodriguez had an 'at-will' agency relationship with CAA that began in 2011," Bennett Speyer, Rodriguez's attorney, said in a statement. "He paid CAA fees in excess of $280,000 through 2015, when he terminated the relationship. Rodriguez never entered in to a written contract with CAA, nor did he ever verbally agree to pay fees for any period after 2015."
CAA says Rodriguez still owes them money from before the two sides parted ways.
