Rutgers May Have A New Abuse Scandal On Its Hands

A few weeks after firing Mike Rice from his job as head basketball coach, Rutgers is facing another potential scandal, after it announced it was suspending its head lacrosse coach as it investigates verbal abuse accusations. Brian Brecht has led his team to a 2-11 record this season. Meanwhile, after initially being denied severance pay, it turns out Rice will be granted $475,000 to settle the remaining two years on his contract.
