Rutgers Begins AD Interview Process; New Law Firm Hired For Mike Rice Review
Published May 9, 2013
ADMINISTRATION EVALUATION: Rutgers yesterday said that it has "hired a new law firm to conduct an independent review of how it handled the suspension and subsequent firing of former men’s basketball coach Mike Rice." In New Jersey, Melissa Hayes reports Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP will "replace Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, which resigned May 3 after a possible conflict was discovered." Rutgers officials said that Cahill would "help with the transition to Skadden and that the change would not delay the completion of the independent review" (Bergen RECORD, 5/9).
