Rutgers reaches $475K settlement with Mike Rice



The university, set to enter the Big Ten Conference, is reported to have reached a tentative agreement with Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan to take over as coach of the scandal-marred program.

The video of Rice, taken at practices during his three years at Rutgers and aired on ESPN, showed numerous clips of the coach firing basketballs at players, hitting them in the back, legs, feet and shoulders, grabbing players by their jerseys and yelling obscenities and using anti-gay slurs.

Barchi was called to the Statehouse in Trenton on Thursday to answer questions as lawmakers reviewed $487 million in proposed aid to the state's largest university. Hours later, the settlement was announced.
