Houston (CBS Houston) - Reaction to Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice and his abuse towards players has been immediate and vehement. Even NBA players took to Twitter to voice their outrage over the video shown on ESPN’s Outside the Lines.
If my son played for Rutgers or a coach like that he would have some real explaining to do and I'm still gone whoop on him afterwards! C'mon—

According to a statement released April 3, Rutgers University terminated Mike Rice’s contract, less than 24 hours after the video aired on ESPN.
Is this the last of Mike Rice or should he be allowed to coach again? What do you think?
