Rutgers Whistleblower Sues over Termination

Released the infamous coach abuse video


The man who blew the whistle on Rutgers by releasing the video that showed its basketball coach insulting and abusing players sued the college Friday for conspiracy, discrimination and wrongful firing.

Eric Murdock, a former NBA player who was director of player development for Rutgers' men's basketball team, sued Rutgers and the State University of New Jersey; Rutgers President Robert Barchi; its (fired) hoops coach Michael Rice; its former athletic director Timothy Pernetti, who has resigned; and its former president, Richard McCormick, in Essex County Court.
