Rutgers University assistant basektball coach Jimmy Martelli resigned Wednesday, the day head coach Mike Rice was fired, a university spokesman confirmed Thursday. The spokesman could not provide details of the resignation, saying he was not aware whether any reasons were cited in the move. Martelli is the son of St. Joseph's head coach Phil Martelli. He was also an assistant coach under Rice at Robert Morris University, before Rice hired him in 2010. Martelli was seen on video in at least one incident, ESPN reported Thursday, pushing a player and using an anti-gay slur.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Rutgers introduced Eddie Jordan as its new men's basketball coach Tuesday, turning to a name from the school's past as it seeks to move forward from a scandal that forced the firing of coach Mike Rice and the resignation of athletic director Tim Pernetti.   The 58-year-old Jordan played for the Scarlet Knights from 1973-77 and was a member of Rutgers' Final Four team in 1976.

The scandal that has roiled the men's basketball program at Rutgers University is now dividing the alumni of New Jersey's largest public university. Some graduates say the firing of coach Mike Rice and the resignation of athletic director Tim Pernetti was a slam dunk. "Pernetti did a lot of great things in a short time," said Evan R. Luce, who graduated from Rutgers in 2003, lives in Langhorne, and is a student at Temple University Law School. "But sometimes, fairly or unfairly, you're measured by the worst decision you make.

Tim Pernetti did some good things during his four-year run as the athletic director at Rutgers, with perhaps his crowning achievement being the university's admittance into the Big Ten Conference. But it was his first major move as the man overseeing the Scarlet Knights' 24 athletic programs that eventually did him in. On May 3, 2010, Pernetti hired Mike Rice away from Robert Morris, a mid-major program that had come close to upsetting Villanova in the first round of that year's NCAA tournament.

Rutgers on Thursday said it has suspended coach Mike Rice for three games without pay and fined him $50,000 for what it called "inappropriate behavior and language" that violated department policy. "He won't be able to be active in his role as head basketball coach inside or outside the university," athletic director Tim Pernetti said in a statement. "The suspension for this period of time and these games is a complete removal from the program. " The school pointed out that the action was not over possible NCAA violations, but declined to say why it chose to fine and suspend the coach - or elaborate on the inappropriate behavior and language it cited.

An independent inquiry commissioned by Rutgers University into the scandal that led to basketball coach Mike Rice's ouster has found school leadership exercised "insufficient oversight" over an insular and overly autonomous athletic department. The report, released Monday, calls for various changes, some of which had been recommended in a 2008 review into another Rutgers athletic department scandal, which culminated in the firing of athletic director Robert Mulcahy. Among the changes called for in both reports is a interdepartmental risk management committee that "would provide a much-needed forum for senior leaders to consider university issues such as safety, operations, reputation, assets, and the legal interests" of Rutgers, according to the new document.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Saying she has rolled up her sleeves and is ready to work, Julie Hermann took over as Rutgers University athletic director with the promise that her number-one job is to create an atmosphere for Scarlet Knights students to excel on and off the field. The embattled Hermann showed up for work before most of her employees Monday morning and started the task of leading an embarrassed athletic department back to respectability, winning back boosters and alumni and leading the university into the Big Ten Conference in 2014.

Having taken an already terrible situation and somehow made it worse, Rutgers University seems intent on drawing the blinds now and waiting until the furor over the hiring of new athletic director Julie Hermann goes away. Unfortunately for Rutgers, the fresh problems it has created for itself, and for Hermann, aren't going anywhere. It may take a while for the effects of the flawed hiring process to become apparent, but those are inevitable. A series of meetings scheduled for this week between Hermann and some athletic department coaches and administrators has been postponed, according to one report.

NEWARK, N.J. - Five former New Jersey governors, who served from the 1970s through 2004 and representing both major political parties, gave the embattled president of Rutgers University a vote of confidence Thursday. The three Democrats and two Republicans were responding to questions about Robert Barchi's handling of the student-athlete abuse controversy at the university as they appeared at a public forum. The scandal - which erupted in early April with revelations of berating and other abuse of players by the basketball coach, who was ousted along with the athletic director - reignited over the weekend as former volleyball players at the University of Tennessee, once coached by Julie Hermann, Rutgers' newly hired athletic director, emerged to say she, too, was abusive.

Once again, Rutgers president Robert L. Barchi has blown a big call on the university's athletic program. Incoming athletic director Julie Hermann, named just two weeks ago to replace Tim Pernetti in the wake of a player abuse scandal, has been accused of abusive behavior during her own coaching days at the University of Tennessee. Gov. Christie tried to sidestep the growing controversy Tuesday, saying he would not second-guess the decision to give Hermann the job. "As governor, I'm not going to micromanage every hire at Rutgers University," he said.

NEWARK, N.J. - Incoming Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann was involved in a discrimination lawsuit while an administrator at Louisville, where an assistant track coach said she was fired after complaining to human resources. Information about the case came to light Tuesday, amid continuing debate about Hermann's treatment of players while she was a volleyball coach at Tennessee in the 1990s. The earlier episodes from Hermann's career are particularly troubling for Rutgers, which hired her after former basketball coach Mike Rice was fired in April for physically and verbally abusing players and former athletic director Tim Pernetti was forced to resign for his handling of the problem.

Behaving badly is its own punishment, I taught my children. People who act poorly generally get what they deserve. Though, apparently, not in NCAA Division I athletics. At Rutgers, bad behavior means being named athletic director with a plum $450,000 salary and up to $50,000 in annual bonuses. This is the same Rutgers that last month ousted its basketball coach for abusive behavior, along with the athletic director for allegedly failing to take action. An assistant coach and university lawyer also resigned.
