Rutgers Coach Rice Fired After This Abusive Video Airs On ESPN

The video aired on ESPN Tuesday featuring an angry Mike Rice during practice, according to the school’s athletic department. I’m sure this wasn’t the first time.Based upon recently revealed information and a review of previously discovered issues, Rutgers has terminated the contract of Mike Rice. The video, made public Tuesday, showed him shouting profanities and derogatory terms at his players. He also could be seen throwing basketballs at the players and shoving them.

Athletic director Tim Pernetti received the video in November but did not fire Rice after an internal investigation. The behavior initially earned the coach a three-game suspension and a $50,000 fine.

Rice took the job at Rutgers in 2010 after a successful run in three seasons at Robert Morris. Rutgers finished with a 15-16 record, including 5-13 in Big East play, in 2012-2013.
