Rutgers Athletic Director Gets $1.2M

Everyone involved in the Rutgers basketball scandal is making out pretty well. Tim Pernetti, the athletic director who resigned amid criticism that he was slow to act on coach Mike Rice’s abusive treatment of players, is getting $1.2 million in salary, two years of health insurance, a car allowance, and an iPad. Pernetti resigned last week after video surfaced of Rice shouting homophobic slurs at players and hurling basketballs at their heads. Rice got $1 million—75 percent of his remaining salary—and a $100,000 bonus for working through the current season.
