Rutgers suspends lacrosse coach during review

Posted: Updated:

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- Rutgers University has suspended its head men's lacrosse coach as it investigates allegations of verbal abuse.

The university announced the suspension on Friday, saying that Brian Brecht will continue to be paid.

The school did not give details of allegations.

Rutgers has been reviewing videos of practices in all sports since men's basketball coach Mike Rice was fired this month after a video was made public that showed him kicking players, throwing balls at them and yelling gay slurs.

The university also said Friday that it has formed a search committee for a new athletic director to replace Tim Pernetti, who resigned amid the scandal.
