The Rutgers head basketball coach Mike Rice has been fired for abusing his players! Should he have been fired? The answer to that question is an emphatic "YES!!!" Just take a look at the video clips below, which show Rice hitting his players, cussing them out and throwing basketballs at them, This isn't a coach having a bad day...this is outrageous and abusive behavior repeated over a two year period!
As I said on today's show, firing Rice was the right thing to do, but he's not the only one whose head needs to roll. For trying to look the other way and sweep this under the rug, the athletic director and the university President need to walk the plank, too! In this regard, the situation at Rutgers resembles the Sandusky scandal at Penn State. A cover up cannot be tolerated. Penn State fired it's president, and athletic director, along with legendary coach Joe Paterno, and Rutgers needs to do likewise!
