It was a sad and disappointing day for some major donors to Rutgers University Friday, after athletic director Tim Pernetti resigned in the wake of the Mike Rice player abuse scandal.
Erick Murdock’s lawsuit is a classic whistleblower claim. He said he brought misconduct to the university’s attention, and Rutgers retaliated by firing him.
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.
