University President Robert Barchi has said Hermann remains his choice to lead Rutgers into the Big Ten Conference in 2014.
Making sure the integration of two medical school into Rutgers stays on course is one reason Gov. Christie and others have stood behind President Robert Barchi.
The Pinstripe Bowl and Big Ten will announce at Yankee Stadium on Monday an agreement between the conference and the 3-year-old postseason game.
It’s been an incredible fall from grace for Rutgers’ university athletics after the promise of their move to the Big Ten.
DeAndre Kane’s decision to commit to Iowa State on Thursday night immediately makes the Cyclones a top-four team in the Big 12 next season along with Kansas, Oklahoma State, and Baylor.
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.
Parents beware! Your teenager’s next high may not come from a drug purchased on the street, but from one picked in the backyard.
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.
