FBI Probes Release of Video Showing Rutgers Coach Shoving, Kicking Players

The FBI is trying to determine whether a former Rutgers basketball employee tried to extort the university by threatening to release damaging videos showing ex-coach Mike Rice shoving players and calling them gay slurs, the Associated Press reports.

The former employee, Eric Murdock, quit his job last year at the basketball program’s player development director.

A lawyer for Murdock asked the university for $950,000 to avoid a lawsuit, the AP reported.

The video was released last week, and Murdock filed a whistleblower suit Friday against the university.

The video resulted in Rice’s termination and the resignation of athletic director Tim Pernetti, an assistant basketball coach and the university’s top in-house lawyer.

Immigration officials won’t try to deport a former Rutgers student whose actions cast a national spotlight on the issue of anti-gay bullying, the Record reports.

The native of India, Dharun Ravi, who is considered a legal permanent resident, could have been deported after his May 15 conviction on charges that he encouraged Twitter followers to watch his unwitting roommate have sex with another man via live-streamed images, according to the Record.

The roommate later killed himself.

Federal government lawyers said Ravi’s actions aren’t sufficient to place him in removal proceedings, the Record reported.

Ravi was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
