Rice’s job under review

 

The airing of a videotape of Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice using gay slurs, shoving and grabbing his players and throwing balls at them in practice over the past three seasons has the university’s athletic director reconsidering his decision not to fire the coach. Scarlet Knights AD Tim Pernetti was given a copy of the video in late November by a disgruntled former employee, and he suspended Rice for three games, fined him $50,000 and made him undergo anger management classes for inappropriate behavior after investigating it. In an interview with WFAN, Pernetti said university president Robert Barchi saw the tape and concurred with his actions against Rice. ESPN aired the videotape on Tuesday. – Associated Press
