Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The resignation comes on the heels of ex-head coach Mike Rice being fired after a video showing the basketball coach verbally and physically abusing his players caused a public outcry.
Why isn’t Pernetti standing behind Rice on the unemployment line? He was keenly aware of the video that poisoned the airwaves long before we saw it.
Rutgers University’s fired basketball coach is due a $100,000 bonus for lasting through the season. Mike Rice was dismissed Wednesday after a video was made public of him kicking and shoving players and spewing gay slurs during practices.
In the 21st century, you simply can’t put your hands on a kid. Or throw balls at a kid. Or kick a kid. Or use homophobic slurs toward a kid. Rice did all of these things and still kept his job, until now. And that’s the scariest thing of all.
The video immediately garnered national attention, as Rice is seen both physically and verbally abusing his players. The head coach included gay slurs in his rants and even threw basketballs at his players.
