Not Bobby Knight
The basketball coach at Rutgers University evidently had some explosive outbursts and was filmed abusing some of his players. I had never even heard of this particular coach. Bob Knight won multiple championships, launched a coaching tree of other champions, most notably Mike Krzyzewski, and shaped Hall of Fame players like Isiah Thomas. Mike Rice is no Bob Knight but merely a mediocre coach at Rutgers who does not seem to have achieved much beyond making a spectacle of himself.
