07:16 AM ET 05.21 | Since his very public fallout at Rutgers, Mike Rice has started to take more positive steps.[Rice] has spent the past two weeks at John Lucas' Wellness and Aftercare Program in Houston, Lucas told ESPN.com on Monday. Lucas said Rice is receiving counseling for anger management and that there is no set timetable for his stay. Rice is also working with former college players who are going through Lucas' pre-NBA draft camp. "He's doing great," Lucas said. "His attitude has been phenomenal, and our kids love his intensity and his passion for the game. He's happy to be having this chance to give back a little bit." Lucas declined to answer further questions and said Rice will not be granting any interviews.

Actually, Mike needs to pitch CCA and the Geo Group on starting an intramural program within their prisons systems. He could build a career for himself.

He's got to go back to Coaching as an assistant and work his way back or if unemployed donate his time to local club or school basketball, this will pass!!!
