The abusive actions of the men's basketball coach at Rutgers University, who was videotaped physically and verbally abusing his players during the team's practices and was fired after the scenes were broadcast by ESPN, have now also cost the school's athletic director his job.
Tim Pernetti submitted his resignation Friday morning.
GLEN CAMPBELL: And the Wichita lineman is still on the line....
