Rutgers Fires Tim Pernetti

Rutgers has fired embattled athletic director Tim Pernetti (left), who staunchly defended men’s basketball coach Mike Rice after the coach was accused of assaulting his players. Rice was terminated as head coach of the Rutgers men’s basketball team earlier this week, after ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” aired a video showing him brutally punching and kicking his players.

The video footage was brought to the attention of university officials by former Rutgers director of player development Eric Murdock (right). Murdock’s contract was not renewed shortly after he came forward with the controversial video.

Now Murdock himself is under investigation — by the FBI.
