Since Mike Rice was fired from Rutgers after video of him physically and verbally abusing players was made public, we haven't heard much from him. There was the mid-April story about him coaching his daughter's AAU team, but nothing since.
According to ESPN.com's Jason King, we now know that Rice has spent the past two weeks at John Lucas' Wellness and Aftercare Program in Houston.
Lucas is a former 14-year NBA veteran who had battles with substance abuse, before opening up a facility that helps athletes and coaches who have a variety of issues. Lucas was also a head coach in the NBA for four different teams.
Rice is receiving anger management counseling, while also helping coach players that are preparing for the NBA draft at Lucas' camp.
"He's doing great," Lucas told ESPN.com. "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."
Rice had been the head coach at Rutgers for three seasons, coaching the Scarlet Knights to a 44-51 record. In early April, ESPN's Outside the Lines obtained practice footage of Rice and assistant coach Jimmy Martelli participating in physical and verbal abuse. The video showed Rice throwing basketballs at players, cursing at them and using homophobic slurs. Rice was fired the day after the video was public, and athletic director Tim Pernetti resigned three days later.
