MOON TOWNSHIP — A Robert Morris internal investigation into former basketball coach Mike Rice found no evidence of the “coaches against player” brawls alleged by an ex-Rutgers employee, though one former Colonial contacted by the school claimed Rice used anti-gay slurs on several occasions and engaged in a shoving match with a player during halftime of a game.

Rice coached at the suburban Pittsburgh school from 2007-10 before taking the job at Rutgers, who fired Rice last week after video of the coach abusing players became public. Former Rutgers employee Eric Murdock said Rice told him players and coaches at Robert Morris fought several times during practices.
