Rutgers Commissioning Outside Review Of Mike Rice Scandal
Rutgers Univ. today announced that it is "commissioning an independent review of the conduct of fired basketball coach Mike Rice and the way the university handled the situation" (AP, 4/8). Meanwhile, a source said that Rutgers is "turning to former dean Carl Kirschner to run its athletic department" after the resignation of former AD Tim Pernetti. This is the second time Kirschner will "run the program." He took over in '09 after Robert Mulcahy was fired and held the role for four months (AP, 4/8).
