Report Says Rutgers Should Increase Oversight Of Athletic Dept.
An independent review of Rutgers Univ.'s firing of men's basketball coach Mike Rice finds that the school "should increase its oversight of the athletics department." The 38-page report released today by the school's BOD "calls for increasing oversight of the university's athletics department; the formation of a risk management committee; training for board members; and the creation of clear reporting requirements between athletics department and university administration." The report "also details when the board's athletics committee should bring issues to the full body's attention" (NORTHJERSEY.com, 7/22).
