Rutgers Basketball Coach Mike Rice Fired After Video Revealing Abuse of Players, Anti-Gay Slurs
Rice has now been fired, ESPN reports:
"I am responsible for the decision to attempt a rehabilitation of Coach Rice," said Rutgers athletics director Tim Pernetti said. "Dismissal and corrective action were debated in December and I thought it was in the best interest of everyone to rehabilitate, but I was wrong. Moving forward, I will work to regain the trust of the Rutgers community."
