Rice will reportedly be fired after he was caught on video shoving and verbally abusing players and hurling balls at their heads.

More on the abusive incidents at ESPN.


ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reports that Rice has been axed from his coaching position at Rutgers.


Rutgers confirms that it terminated Rice’s contract.
