Martelli's Son Resigns From Rutgers Assistant Coach Position

Posted: Updated:

There's more fallout from the Rutgers University basketball scandal. Assistant Coach Jimmy Martelli has resigned.

His resignation comes just days after this video surfaced. It shows former Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice hurling basketballs and yelling homophobic slurs to players.

However, Martelli released a statement, saying, "I am sickened that as an assistant coach I contributed in any way to an unacceptable culture."

It goes on to say, "For my actions, I am deeply sorry and I apologize to the players from the bottom of my heart."

Martelli is the son of St. Joseph's head coach, Phil Martelli.
