Rutgers Coach Fired For Firing Insults & Basketballs at Players [VIDEO/POLL]
This story reminds me of a coach I had in high school. He was a bully! I hate bullies! Rutgers head basketball coach Mike Rice was fired Wednesday, one day after a video was shown on ESPN of him hitting, shoving, throwing basketballs at and berating his players.
According to ESPN, Athletic Director Tim Pernetti was given a copy of the tape by a former employee in November and, after an independent investigator was hired to review it, Rice was suspended for three games, fined $75,000 and ordered to attend anger management classes. However, after the video came out, the pressure from the public forced Rutgers to fire the coach. Rice was in his third season with the Scarlet Knights.
