With coach still on suspension, Rutgers lacrosse enters its final week of season

The Rutgers men's lacrosse team will enter its final week of the season under the direction of an interim head coach until further notice.

Byron Collins coached the Scarlet Knights on Saturday night during a 16-7 loss to Duke at home, while head coach Brian Brecht remains suspended for allegations of verbal abuse.

Rutgers will play host to Georgetown on Saturday in the season finale. Collins is scheduled to lead the team's practice on Monday.

Brecht was suspended indefinitely on Friday, pending an investigation. Rutgers, under the direction of President Robert Barchi and Interim Athletic Director Carl Kirschner, has been reviewing all sports since men's basketball coach Mike Rice was fired earlier this month after a video was made public that showed him abusing players.
