Speaker Oliver: Rice Must Go

Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic) released the following statement Tuesday on the video depicting Rutgers men’s basketball coach Mike Rice abusing his players:

“”The conduct of Mike Rice is unacceptable not only at our state university, but in all circumstances. It is offensive and unbecoming of our state. Mike Rice should no longer be employed by Rutgers University. He must go. Meanwhile, the decision not to dismiss him last year needs a complete and thorough review.”
