Rutgers Suspends Another Coach Over Verbal Abuse

See if this sounds familiar: Rutgers has suspended a men's coach on allegations of verbal abuse. This time, it's lacrosse coach Brian Brecht, but the university hasn't released any details of the investigation, reports the Star-Ledger of New Jersey. The school has been poring over practice tapes of all its coaches in the wake of the Mike Rice debacle, in which the basketball coach got caught berating his players to such a degree that it earned a Saturday Night Live parody. Brecht, 40, will keep earning his $130,000 salary during the investigation, reports AP. His team is 2-11 this year. (Read more Rutgers stories.)
