Rutgers Basketball Coach Abuse Video

April 3, 2013 by  

Rutgers Basketball Coach Abuse Video, Rutgers University fired men’s basketball coach Mike Rice on Wednesday, a day after the ESPN sports network broadcast a video showing him shoving players, hurling balls at their heads and berating them with homophobic slurs.

The video stirred outrage among college and professional players, fans and government officials, including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who called the dismissal “the right and necessary action to take in light of the conduct displayed” at the state’s largest public university with 58,000 students.

The video went viral almost four months after Rutgers Athletic Director Tim Pernetti suspended Rice for three games. The suspension cost Rice $75,000 in fines and lost salary.

The firing marked an abrupt reversal for Rutgers, which had retained Rice as coach when the suspension ended and had ordered him to undergo anger-management therapy.
