Men’s College Hoops: Rutgers Fires Head Coach After Video Controversy

RUTGERS HAS FIRED MEN’S HEAD BASKETBALL COACH MIKE RICE…

 

THE SCHOOL MADE THE DECISION AFTER A VIDEO WAS RELEASED TO ESPN SHOWING RICE THROWING BASKETBALLS AT PLAYERS DURING PRACTICE… HE ALSO SHOVED PLAYERS DURING THE VIDEO SHOWN BY THE CABLE SPORTS NETWORK.

 

RICE HAD BEEN SUSPENDED IN DECEMBER FOR THE BEHAVIOR, BUT THE VIDEO WAS NOT RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC AT THAT TIME. WHEN ESPN AIRED THE TAPE EARLIER THIS WEEK, IT CREATED A BACKLASH AGAINST RICE AND THE RUTGERS ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT.
