NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Members of the Rutgers men's basketball team say they didn't feel threatened by their former coach's behavior and they want an assistant coach to take over the program.
Several players spoke briefly with reporters Thursday before the university's board of governors convened to discuss the team's situation.
Coach Mike Rice was fired last week after a video was made public showing him pushing and kicking players and using gay slurs in practice. An assistant and two school administrators have resigned.
Kadeem Jack said that the players never felt threatened by Rice's behavior.
He and other players called for Rice's assistant David Cox to become head coach.
