Mike Rice is finally telling his side of the story, and that side includes a helping of self-examination, according to USA TODAY Sports.

After seven months of radio silence, the former Rutgers basketball coach toldThe New York Times Magazine, "I was an idiot, but I never abused anybody."



In the long-form story, for which reporter Jonathan Mahler spent weeks with Rice starting in June, Rice concludes that the pressure to win on a big stage prompted him to take in-your-face tactics that worked at Robert Morris to the next level, USA TODAY Sports reports.
