10:46 AM ET 11.10 | Mike Rice is coaching again. Or rather, he's running after-school clinics for third-to-sixth graders at a vast, four-court indoor basketball facility in Neptune, N.J., where he also works out local high-school players on Friday afternoons and coaches his son's high-school team in a fall recreational league. Considering where Rice was a year ago -- preparing for his third season as head coach at Rutgers University with a guaranteed salary of $700,000 -- it is quite a step down. Of course, considering where Rice was seven months ago -- a figure of national disgrace who was fired for mistreating his players -- it's a little hard to believe he's coaching at all. "It helps when your best friend owns the place," Rice said.

Try not to scream at him, or throw the ball at him, Mike.

We need to hijack every CBB thread, and make it CFB. Especially since they took away the fun stuff
