Mike Rice Scandal Now Has FBI and Robert Morris Involved
When video of ex-Rutgers Scarlet Knights coach throwing basketballs at players surfaced, the NCAAB world was taken by storm. Everyone and their brother has seen the famous Mike Rice rampage, however the FBI is now getting involved in the mess. Ex-Rutgers assistant Eric Murdock is responsible for blowing the whistle on Rice and now he is being investigate by the FBI for extorting Rutgers University.
Murdock conjured up the video and reportedly asked the University for a pretty penny in exchange for rights to the tape and to obviously shut Murdock up. Rutgers did not bite on the offer and Murdock was forced to go on national television to exploit his former employer.
The other case of business involves Mike Rice’s old school, the Robert Morris Colonials. Rice put the program on the map from 2007-09, but now the school is looking into his actions towards the players when he was at the helm. Murdock said that there were five player-coach brawls when Rice was at Robert Morris, but footage has yet to be seen. I can guarantee that Rice did not flip a switch the minute he stepped onto Rutgers’ campus and it’s just a matter of time before new information comes out about Rice’s irrational behavior.
Rice will never regain his credibility and his coaching days are over, but that will not stop him from dominating the sports world for at least a few more weeks. The video of him losing his mind wound up in him losing his job and also resulted in the firing of Tim Pernetti who was a top five Athletic Director while at Rutgers.
