MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University and
ex-football coach Rich Rodriguez will have their day in court. Judge Robert Stone has set an April 3 scheduling conference and hearing date on motions and counterclaims filed in WVU's lawsuit over the $4 million buyout clause in Rodriguez's contract.
The hearing will be in Monongalia County Circuit Court in Morgantown.
Rodriguez resigned in December to take the head coaching job at
Michigan, touching off a bitter public feud. WVU attorney Tom Flaherty says depositions tentatively set to be taken this month are being postponed until April.
