Rich Rodriguez could be added to Title IX lawsuit

Tucson, Ariz. - Former Arizona Football Coach Rich Rodriguez could soon be added to a federal lawsuit involving the University of Arizona and alleged Title IX violations. 

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the woman suing the university for violating her Title IX rights filed a motion last week to add Rodrigez as a defendant. 

The amended complaint says that Rodriguez "instituted and enforced a set of shadow policies" for the program, and that effectively eliminated the enforcement of laws protecting students. 

According to the Daily Star the amended lawsuit says that Rodriguez "intentionally created a climate in which 'Title IX did not exist' for the football program." 

The court has not filed a response to the new motion, meaning Rodriguez has not yet been added to the lawsuit.
