He was fired for shoving them and throwing basketballs at them, not for his homophobic abuse, imo.
Rutgers N.B. sounds like a pretty disgusting, backwards place.

I think I'll leave beautiful Hawaii and move to the nation's toxic waste dumping ground so i can work at Rutgers. Then I'll abuse some students emotionally and physically, and retire with a huge settlement. What a great career choice.
And you're correct, Tea Bag. The homophobic chatter was just icing on the turd cake he'd already cooked. It was the physical abuse that got him canned, plus the public's response to seeing the abuse. A might potent combination.

I didn't mean the homophobic abuse was just an additional aggravation. I meant it is again minimized.
Imagine if the coach had uttered anti Semitic slurs against his players. In that case he wouldn't have just or primarily been fired for hurling basketballs at them or shoving them.
