Yesterday on ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” there was a story about Mike Rice, the Rutgers men’s basketball coach throwing balls at players and using anti-gay slurs. With similar evidence there was a 3 game suspension and $50,000 fine during the season.
Now, he is fired. I think it’s the right decision. As a proud alumnus of Rutgers, I would love to see stability in the program and a coach to be proud of. Especially as the school enters the Big Ten in 2014-15.
A coach to be proud of first, a good program second. It’s time. It’s beyond time.
