Christie said he doesn’t want to micromanage the university and won’t say whether incoming athletic director Julie Hermann should start at the school as scheduled on June 17.
Hermann officially takes over the athletic department on June 17, and on Monday she said she plans to be in the position on that date.
Former Gov. Richard Codey is calling for Rutgers president Robert Barchi’s dismissal, calling the latest allegations to rock the athletic department “an embarrassment to the students and alumni of a great university.”
Hermann will replace Tim Pernetti, whose resignation from the university came last month amid the Mike Rice coaching abuse scandal.
New Rutgers basketball coach Eddie Jordan is not a graduate of the university as the school had claimed, another embarrassment for an athletic program still smarting from the firing of previous coach Mike Rice.
If Shane Larkin returns to Miami for his junior season, the Hurricanes will make the NCAA Tournament. If he leaves for the NBA, Jim Larranaga’s team will be in complete rebuilding mode.

Rutgers’ board of governors will meet Tuesday to sign off on a contract that will allow Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan to take over the Scarlet Knights’ scandal-marred basketball program.
Jordan’s quest to make his alma mater relevant nationally was going to be an arduous task regardless, but now with recent player defections, the Scarlet Knights will have to work just to put together a roster for next season.
Rutgers is turning to one of its greatest players to lead the basketball program out of one of its darkest hours and into a future that will see it enter the Big Ten Conference in 2014.
Police have released pictures hoping to identify more students involved in the party that turned rowdy.
While Jordan and Rutgers worked to make him the head of the university’s scandal-marred basketball program, there was more bad news for the Scarlet Knights.
Rutgers’ expected hiring of Eddie Jordan also means that Scarlet Knights associate head coach David Cox will likely remain on the coaching staff, per multiple sources close to the situation.
What has Rice been up to since his firing from Rutgers? He’s coaching a girls youth basketball team — and it seems the parents like him.
Bottles were smashed and a couch burned in the middle of the street as police in riot gear attempted to break up the crowd of young party goers, many of whom are students at Rutgers.
