Rutgers Rice Basketba_Hass.jpg

Mike Rice (left) is introduced as the new men's basketball coach of Rutgers by athletic director Tim Pernetti during a news conference May 6, 2010, at Rutgers in Piscataway, N.J. Rutgers has fired Rice after a videotape aired showing him shoving, grabbing and throwing balls at players in practice and using gay slurs during practice. With mounting criticism on a state and national level, the school decided to take action on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, relieving Rice of his duties after three largely unsuccessful seasons at the Big East school.
