Fired Whistleblower Sues Rutgers amid Mike Rice Abuse Fallout [DOCUMENT]

Eric Murdock is in an excellent position to say “I told you so.”

And the former assistant coach of the Rutgers basketball team is saying it in the form of a lawsuit.

Murdock claims he was fired for raising the very concerns that led to this week’s termination of head coach Mike Rice and the resignation of athletic director Tim Pernetti — which both came after Murdock leaked to ESPN a video of Rice throwing balls at players and slinging curses and anti-gay slurs.

Murdock, a former NBA player, was employed as the director of player development until he was fired last July 2.

Murdock’s suit names the university, Rice, Pernetti, President Robert Barchi, and former President Richard McCormick.

He claims “violation of New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act,” hostile work environment, breach of contract, “breach of Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing,” wrongful discharge, negligence, and civil conspiracy.
