Shocking video footage has been obtained by ESPN’s Outside The Lines showing Rutgers’ coach Mike Rice abusing his players during practice.

The footage openly shows Rice pushing and shouting at his players and he even resorts to throwing basketballs at the players’ feet and even their faces.

First viewed on Tuesday, the video footage has sparked angry social media comments from New Jersey Gov Chris Christie and Miami Heat forward LeBron James.

Several fans are calling for Rice never to be allowed to coach ever again.

ESPN has also reported that a decision regarding the disgraced coach’s future as coach is expected to be announced at some point during this week, possibly as early as tonight [Wednesday].
