TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Lawyers for former Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez have released what they say is the 2012 and 2015 versions of the coach's infamous "Hideaway Book," as well as copies of a polygraph test taken by Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, who was fired by the school Jan. 2, has been accused of running a hostile workplace by his former administrative assistant Melissa Wilhelmsen.

Wilhelmsen, who has filed a $7.5 million lawsuit, also accused Rodriguez of sexual harassment and running a football program where "Title IX doesn't exist."

Rodriguez has called Wilhelmsen's claims a "sensationalized tale" created to extort him.
