Arizona Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez is being sued for breach of contract by the agency that used to represent him. Creative Artist Agencies (CAA) filed a civil suit against Rodriguez and his wife in U.S. District Court of Arizona on Wednesday, seeking $230,050 in “past due fees.” Variety first reported the suit Thursday. Rodriguez hired CAA in 2011 but fired the agency sometime in 2015 and stopped paying invoices, according to documents obtained by the Star. “Although Rodriguez terminated the relationship, this termination did not eliminate his obligation to pay the required fees for CAA’s work performed on his behalf,” the suit states. “CAA attempted to resolve the dispute with Rodriguez’s attorney prior to filing suit. Rodriguez’s attorney refused to negotiate. Rodriguez’s attorney claimed that Rodriguez terminated the agreement between Rodriguez and CAA.” Rodriguez’s lawyer is not named in the lawsuit. Initial attempts to reach Rodriguez for comment have been unsuccessful.
