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.

Wilhelmsen has said Rodriguez wrote a secret book -- called the "Hideaway Book" -- each year for coaches and football operations employees.

She said the purpose of the books was to "establish secrecy within Rodriguez's inner circle and establish complete control of the group."

You can read the 2015 "Hideaway Book" HERE and the 2012 "Hideaway Book" HERE.

Rodriguez's lawyers said their client passed a polygraph test about the sexual harassment allegations. You can read the results of the test HERE.
