While you are correct that Michigan is an employment-at-will state, that is most likely irrelevant here as football coaches generally work under employment contracts and it is that contract that would govern the rights and responsibilities of the parties for any discipline or discharge. The coaching contracts that I have seen distinguish between termination with cause and termination without cause. If that is true of this coach, they could absolutely terminate him under the contract if they wanted to do so, but there would likely be a fight over whether this was conduct suffcient to qualify as termination with cause (so they don't have to pay him) or without cause (so that they do have to pay him).Wrong. Michigan, like most states, is an at-will state, meaning he can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, assuming the reason is outside of a protected basis (gender, religion, nationality, etc.). Do you ever get tired of being wrong in virtually every post you make?
