Rutgers Lawyer John Wolf Resigns In Continued Mike Rice Fallout

John Wolf, Rutgers' top in-house lawyer, resigned today "amid growing anger that he was still employed after approving a decision in December to suspend rather than fire" basketball coach Mike Rice. School officials announced last week that Wolf "had resigned from his leadership position," then this week acknowledged that he was "remaining at Rutgers as a lower-level lawyer." Meanwhile, the school's BOG "plans to discuss hiring an adviser to report" on how the university handled Rice's behavior (AP, 4/11).
