NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers University is changing the law firm leading the review of how the school handled to the dismissal of head basketball coach Mike Rice.
University officials announced Wednesday Stephen Robinson and Christopher Gunther of the financial law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom will lead.
Robinson is a former federal judge and U.S. attorney.
The law firm previously assigned to the review resigned May 3. University officials found a firm that represented the old counsel had issued a report to Rutgers about the coach's allegations.
Rice was fired after a video of him shoving and shouting anti-gay slurs in practice became public. Athletic director Tim Pernetti resigned, as did the school's top in-house lawyer, John Wolf.
Settlements with the three were worth about $2.1 million overall.
