Robert Morris hopes to address this week allegations of physical confrontations with players and former coach Mike Rice during his three seasons with the Colonials.
Athletic director Craig Coleman could speak on the matter Monday or Tuesday, after the school wraps up an internal investigation looking into the claims, according to a university official.
During Eric Murdock's interview with ESPN, aired last Tuesday along with the video of Rice's abusive practices at Rutgers, Murdock pointed out what he had heard about Rice's tactics at Robert Morris, a Northeast Conference school in suburban Pittsburgh, where he coached from 2007-10.
``It's amazing to me how he got this far in this profession,'' Murdock said, ``first of all, because what I understand is at Robert Morris there were five coaches-versus-player brawls in practice.''
