The nightmare at Rutgers University continues. Incoming athletic director Julie Hermann is smack-dab in the middle of some more controversy, according to the New York Times.
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.”
Julie Hermann was tapped for AD after a scandal surrounding the Rutgers men’s basketball head coach led to several firings.
The Hermann problem has popped up when many thought the worst was over, and that the Rutgers athletic department could start focusing on its move to the Big Ten in 2014.
Hermann will replace Tim Pernetti, whose resignation from the university came last month amid the Mike Rice coaching abuse scandal.
Rutgers introduced Eddie Jordan as its new men’s basketball coach on Tuesday, turning to a name from the school’s past as it seeks to move forward from a scandal that forced the firing of coach Mike Rice.
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.
Rutgers has suspended its head men’s lacrosse coach as it investigates allegations of verbal abuse. The university announced the suspension on Friday, saying that Brian Brecht will continue to be paid.
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.
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.
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.
In the wake of Mike Rice being fired, Rutgers University has offered the head coaching position of the men’s basketball team to Lakers assistant coach Eddie Jordan, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
The board of governors announced that a widely-respected former state attorney general, John J. Farmer, will be the school’s new top lawyer. Farmer had been serving as dean of its Newark law school.
Let’s just say Bryant wouldn’t have put up with the fired Rutgers coach — at all.
