Statement from Rich Rodriguez's attorney to ESPN in response to the lawsuit filed against him by his former agency alleging breach of contract: "Coach Rodriguez had an 'at-will' agency relationship with CAA that began in 2011. 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." Rodriguez will fight this lawsuit "vigorously," his attorney said.
