Coach Bob Hurley, author of Chasing Perfect: The Will to Win in Basketball and in Life, weighed in on the recent firing of Rutgers basketball Coach Mike Rice. “Mike is a friend and I’ve attended a lot of practices… and I just never saw any of those things,” Hurley said. He went on to say that he knows many individuals who have been coached by Rice, and none have mentioned Rice acting up in the ways that were shown in the video. “It’s alarming. It’s very difficult to watch, and it’s difficult as a coach to look at and try to figure out,” Hurley explained.
