He definitely has the crazy eyes.
wasn't this guy considered a "rising star" when he was hired
BUT HE WAS INTENSE AND ALMOST BEAT PITTSBURGH!

His future recruiting is more/less dead for the future (unless he backdoor pays players).
It's one thing to abuse players and win. A totally different thing to abuse players and continue to lose. That's why his recruiting is in trouble (that and it's Rutgers).
He (or the athletic department) will probably release a statement within a week saying he's seeking counseling for anger issues or something to that effect, and he'll work harder/care more in the future.
Can't wait for that awesome home and home with them in basketball, you guys.
Every college basketball practice at every major school is video taped. The entire thing. It doesn't take blackmailing to get a video released.
[Rutgersfans] This is no different than any Bob Huggins, Frank Martin or Gary Williams practice! just ESPN out to get us again! [/Rutgersfans]
they are so NCST
That was always the big joke.. While Gary would get at it in practice, the many that I saw were the relatively the opposite of his game-day sideline demeanor
That dude is NUTS!
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
Found this amusing:
"Wally Judge, a junior current Rutgers player, had transferred from Kansas State, where he said the practices were harder. He said he didn't think Rice's language was inappropriate, and the coach never put his hands on him."
Of course this guy looks sane compared to Frank Martin.
That's an unfair characterization of Murdock's role in this. On OTL it said Murdock reported the behavior to his superiors but they wouldn't do anything. Sounds possible Murdock may have even been fired because he was complaining about it.
He wasn't fired, his contract ended
"Turgeon has 3 key guys on current roster - Allen, Dez, and Jake - that have not improved." -Orioleterp
Apparently he's filing a wrongful termination suit
He probably wanted them to fire Rice but they wouldn't.
Makes sense for him to release the video and it certainly isn't blackmail, it's whistleblowing. I seriously doubt Murdock would want his job back working with a crazy asshole, he probably wants his job back with a sane head coach

he's done. Combine this with three losing seasons and it's not good for a coach. Also the use of homophobic slurs may not even give the school a choice especially in the wake of the gay kid at Rutgers who committed suicide a couple years back.
At least this didn't happen to their #3 football program.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Rutgers is gonna have to clean house. Everyone is done. Coach, staff, AD, probably a few others.
Funny thing is after getting them in the B1G, their AD was hugely popular I thought. Except now that they're in they don't need him anymore. You gotta believe Delany is on the phone with the school president today.
Not that the video alone wouldn't make any school in the country fire the dude, but this fact should be the nail in the coffin.
It took the snitch 2 years apparently to tell the AD about this. Classy guy. He and the coach are awful
GW was all about teaching. I only saw a few glimpses of practice but he was not anything like in a game.
John Gilchrist will be their new head coach; slightly less crazy and when he throw balls at them, there will be know homophobic slurs, he'll just yell 'I'M FROM THE STREETS!!!'
huh? How do you know he didn't try other methods? Maybe he tried talking with the other assistants or directly with Rice? Maybe it got better for a bit and then started back up again.
Stop using the word "snitch" like you are some tough gangbanger. Murdock should be commended for exposing it.
He is only exposing it to get paid. If you watch the piece he comes off as such
Totally disgusting. Fire him immediate, there should be criminal and civil lawsuits filed against that POS.
If I was a father of one of those players, and I witnessed that, I would have confronted rice immediatley and probably mauled him.
He needs to do some time.
