Rutgers coach fired for controversial video

NEWARK, N.J. -- A Big East basketball coach is now out of a job after a controversial video was released

A video shows Rutgers Men's Basketball Coach Mike Rice hitting, kicking and even screaming obscenities at players.

All of it was shot between 2010 and 2012.

ESPN aired the video Tuesday and within 24 hours he was fired.

"There's no explanation for what's on the film there's no excuse. I was wrong and I want to tell everyone who has believed in me that I'm deeply sorry for the pain and hardship that I've caused them," said Rice.

The Rutgers athletic director admitted that he saw the video in November.

Rice was previously suspended for three games fined $50,000 and told to take anger management classes.

The athletic director now says that punishment was a mistake.
