re: F.B.I. Investigating Former Rutgers Assistant for extortion(Posted by JOHNN on 4/7/13 at 5:48 pm to Choupique19)
Asst coach went to AD with tape saying Rice was out of control.
AD cant fire Rice because they are in the middle of B10 talks and negative pub about why could damage chances of getting in.
In order to shut up asst, he is then let go but because NJ isnt a fire at will state, they decide to use the bsketball camp situation as the "reason" why his contract just happens to not get renewed.
Asst coaches lawyers try to settle out of court for wrongful termination, rutgers tries to call their bluff, then someone leakes tapes to espn.
Moral of story:
Dont call someones bluff when you dont have the trump card.
