Former Siena coach suspended at Rutgers

Former Siena men's lacrosse coach Brian Brecht was suspended with pay, on Friday, for allegations of verbal abuse.

Brecht, who is in his second season at Rutgers, becomes the second coach at the New Jersey school to be suspended this month. Basketball coach Mike Rice was suspended on April 2 and fired the next day for video of him physically and verbally abusing, which became national.

Brecht (below, in yellow) was the coach at Siena for seven years, where he posted a 65-49 record and got the program to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history, in 2009, and again in 2011.

The Scarlet Knights are 8-20 in Brecht's two seasons as coach.

Here is a link to the statement from Rutgers.
