Pernetti was given the video in late November by a former employee. With the approval of Barchi, he suspended Rice for three games, fined him $75,000 and ordered him to attend anger management classes. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez, File)

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Rutgers officials are scrutinizing practice videos of all sports to see if any coach engaged in behavior like the type that cost men's basketball coach Mike Rice his job, the university president announced Monday. The inquiry into Rice and how university officials responded is also going deeper as the school announced that it plans to hire a consultant to conduct an independent review.
