Rutgers Fires Head Basketball Coach Mike Rice

NEW BRUNSWICK -

 

Fired Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice says he was wrong to treat his players the way he did.
   
Speaking Wednesday outside his home in Little Silver, Rice says there's no excuse for his behavior and he is sorry.

    Rice says he let down his players, Rutgers and its fans and was an embarrassment to his family.

    Rice was fired Wednesday, a day after excerpts of videos were released publicly showing him yelling anti-gay slurs at players, throwing basketballs at them, and shoving and kicking them.

    Rice says he had been working on changing after being confronted about his actions last year. He was suspended for three games in December.
