Rutgers officials are scrutinizing practice videos of all sports to see if any coach engaged in behavior like the type that cost men’s basketball coach Mike Rice his job, the university announced Monday. The inquiry into Rice and how university officials responded is also going deeper as the school announced that it plans to hire a consultant to conduct an independent review. Meanwhile, Mark Hershhorn, chariman of the university Board of Governors’ athletics committee, said through his attorneys that he did call for Rice’s firing on the day in early December that he watched the video. Contrary to his recommendation, Hershhorn said, the university chose to discipline Rice instead of let him go. Rutgers also announced that former dean Carl Kirschner will run the athletic department on an interim basis . . . Audra Smith, a former Virginia player who spent the past nine years as women’s basketball coach at UAB, was hired to take over the struggling Clemson program. She succeeds Itoro Coleman, who went just 25-63 in three seasons . . . WPI men’s basketball coach Chris Bartley, who led the Engineers to a school-best 26 wins, was named recipient of the Glenn Robinson National Coach of the Year award, given to honor the nation’s top Division 3 coach.
