Rutgers University basketball coach Mike Rice has been fired after ESPN aired footage of him hurling anti-gay slurs at players during a practice session.

The 30-minute video was taken during practices which took place from 2010 to 2012 and was compiled by former Rutgers director of player development Eric Murdock, who said his contract was not renewed after he showed the footage to the athletic department.

According to The New York Times, Rutgers Athletic Director Tim Pernetti saw the footage in December and Rice was suspended for three games and fined $50,000.

In the video, Rice is seen shoving players, throwing basketballs at students and screaming, “You fucking fairy …. You're a fucking faggot.”

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Rice's conduct “disturbing.”

“Governor Christie saw the video today for the first time,” press secretary Michael Drewniak said, “and he is obviously deeply disturbed by the conduct displayed and strongly condemns this behavior. It's not the type of leadership we should be showing our young people, and clearly there are questions about this behavior that need to be answered by the leaders at Rutgers University.”

GLAAD, a leading LGBT rights advocate, called on the school to fire Rice.

“The school sent a powerful message to Rice himself when it suspended and fined him for this incident,” the group wrote. “But now that this tape has gone public, and the entire community has seen it, the school has to take further action to send an even more powerful message of support to its LGBT students.”

ESPN basketball analyst Jalen Rose also called for Rice's termination. “The video of Rutgers H.C. Rice abusing players is appalling! He should be fired ASAP,” he tweeted.

“Based upon recently revealed information and a review of previously discovered issues, Rutgers has terminated the contract of Mike Rice,” Rutgers Athletics tweeted on Wednesday.
