Former Rutger's athletic director Tim Pernetti resigns

Rutger's former athletic director Tim Pernetti has resigned.

Pernetti handed down what's been called a mild punishment to former Rutger's basketball coach Mike Rice. Rice was captured on video physically and verbally abusing Rutgers players.

The former coach was fired earlier this week.

Pernetti came under fire for choosing to suspend and fine rice when he found out about the video in November.
