Rutgers needs to seriously tighten up its athletics program!
Only a few weeks after firing the abusive men's basketball coach Mike Rice , the university has just suspended its head men's lacrosse coach Brian Brecht!
Here's what the president said:
"While I cannot comment on an ongoing investigation, let me reiterate that there is no place at Rutgers for words or actions that are inconsistent with the values of the university. Our student-athletes, as all members of the Rutgers community, should know that our university is committed to promoting an atmosphere of respect and dignity. As I stressed earlier, we will be looking closely at all intercollegiate athletics at Rutgers going forward. If we find problems, we will address them."
But why did they suspend the lacrosse coach, you ask? We know we, personally, wanted to know that very much indeed!
Well, the details are foggy, but it seems there are allegations swirling around Brech's coaching style consisted of some scary verbal abuse!
The university suspended the coach, but it will continue to pay him.
We think they need to figure out what happened here and make a decision ASAP.
Get it together, y'all!
