We were pretty worried about Rutgers and their idea of proper hiring over there in their sports department, and now it's looking like their Lacrosse coach (Brian Brecht) has been reinstated after an inquiry into his coaching style!
The inquiry was launched because there were MORE allegations of verbal abuse! If you remember, they just got done firing Mike Rice for just that — being an awful and mean human being to his players!
So if they reinstated him, the allegations were false, right??
NOPE: the university's investigation showed that the coach had used “inappropriate language and exhibited unprofessional behavior on occasion.” He was reinstated because they found no criminal or university policy violations!
The coach in question says he regrets his behavior and will set a better example in the future — things most people would say only AFTER they've been caught being abusive and awful!
We wouldn't be surprised if nobody ever wanted to join the Rutgers for sports now! Such a shame!
