SU Chancellor Gets New Job

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers University is set to announce a new chancellor for its Newark campus who had her own problems with a basketball program.

The Star-Ledger of Newark reports Rutgers will name outgoing Syracuse University Chancellor and President Nancy Cantor to the $385,000-a-year position on Thursday.

Cantor was criticized for her handling of molestation accusations against Syracuse men's associate head basketball coach Bernie Fine. Cantor fired Fine in 2011 despite an earlier investigation.

One of Fine's accusers last year admitted he fabricated the allegations and federal prosecutors announced the coach would not be charged.

Cantor tells the newspaper she would have called in law enforcement sooner if she had to do it over again.

Rutgers fired its basketball coach in April after a video showed him verbally and physically abusing his players.
