Mike Rice Berates 12 Year Old Girls Team?

Sometimes real life truly is stranger than fiction.

Just a little over a week after former Rutgers men’s basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for verbally and physically abusing his players, it’s been discovered that Rice is still coaching a 12-year-old girls AAU team in New Jersey that includes his daughter, Katie.

Brian Geltzeiler of HoopsCritic.com started off a firestorm on Sunday after tweeting out that Rice was on the sideline for the AAU team and once again acting outrageously:

One of my moles is watching Mike Rice coach 12 year old girls at Holmdel High in NJ right now as crazy as ever yelling @ both refs and kids

It’s insane that Mike Rice is coaching a 7th grade girls AAU team out of Neptune NJ 2 weeks after those tapes went public…SMH….

Just to clarify. I’m not joking. Mike Rice is actually coaching a 7th grade girls AAU team today and he’s still acting like a mad man….

The story was picked up in numerous places and led to a backlash.
