Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice fired for abusing players

Rutgers finally fired basketball coach Mike Rice on Wednesday after a videotape showing him shoving, grabbing and throwing balls at players and using anti-gay slurs during practice aired on ESPN. The video, broadcast Tuesday on ESPN's Outside the Lines, led to harsh criticism from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Lebron James. With increasing criticism on a state and national level, Rutgers terminated Rice after three disappointing seasons. Rice apologized for his actions (with a lot of fake tears) at a news conference outside of his house.FOR MORE NEXT MEDIA ANIMATION, GO TO: Facebook @nmatv http://nmatv.tumblr.comGoogle+ The video came to light through former director of player development Eric Murdock. It shows Rice hurling expletives and anti-gay slurs at his players. Murdock claims he was fired when he tried to blow the whistle on Rice's harsh behavior towards his college players. Murdock plans to sue Rutgers for wrongful termination. Murdoch showed the 30-minute video, which consists of several practices edited together, to the athletic department in December, but that only led to Rice's suspension. It wasn't until Murdoch took the video to ESPN and it was aired that the university took actions to fire Rice. Way to keep it on the down low, Rutgers. Do you believe Rice's apology? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -FOR MORE NMA IN ENGLISH, GO TO: FOR MORE APPLE DAILY ENGLISH, GO TO: FOR MORE TOMONEWS JP, GO TO: Check out the Oddbods!
