Littlefield On Sports: Rutgers Coach Fired and More March Madness

Famous Celtics coach Red Auerbach once said, ” Be a man of integrity… stand up for your players. Show them you care on and off the court.” Well it seems Rutgers men’s basketball coach Mike Rice didn’t get that memo. Today he was fired by the university after he was secretly videotaped shoving and kicking his players, and throwing basketballs at their heads while berating them with gay slurs.

Bill Littlefield joins us to talk about the Rutgers controversy, more March Madness and the 40th anniversary of Major League Baseball’s designated hitter.
