Report: Mike Rice used gay slurs directed at players while at Robert Morris

10 Comments

According to a report from the AP, Rice used gay slurs directed at player and threw basketballs at them during practice. And frankly, that isn’t all that much of a surprise. If he was doing those kind of things at Rutgers, it was a pretty safe bet he was doing them before he got to Rutgers as well.

So that’s not really a huge issue for me, because that’s not a new piece of information.

What’s more concerning is the second part of that report:

A former Rutgers staff member alleged Rice engaged in several “coaches versus players” brawls while coaching the Colonials from 2007-10.

Coaches versus players brawls?

Now that’s a problem, and I don’t think I really need to explain why.
