We see media coverage nearly every day about horrific behavior, a rogue employee or deeper criticisms about the culture of an organization.  This week is no different as we prepare for college basketball’s Final Four.

Rutgers University fired their basketball coach Wednesdayafter a video of his incredible behavior shoving players, throwing basketballs at players and downright degrading his team was shown on ESPN’s Outside the Lines and later went viral.

It followed initial notification about this behavior to their management last summer and a suspension for three games in December that’s put their Athletic Director on the hot seat for not administering a more severe punishment — now that the video is public.
