Mike Rice was fired from Rutgers after ESPN’s Outside the Lines aired footage of him throwing basketballs at, kicking and using gay slurs against his own players at practice.

For those of you who have been living under a rock, here’s the video.

Rice’s actions, the embarrassing mishandling of the situation by the Scarlet Knights athletic department and finally his firing have all received national attention.

In fact, so infamous is Rice at this point that one may have expected him to crawl into a hole and hide out for a year, or seven, before attempting some sort of comeback at a D-II or low-level D-I school.

Well, Rice has not waited nearly as long as some may have assumed he would. However, he is not exactly coaching in the Big East anymore.

Following is accounts of Rice’s actions via Brian Geltzeiler, founder of hoopscritic.com, columnist for Sheridan Hoops and regular contributor to Yahoo and Fox radio broadcasts.
