(CNN) — Rutgers men’s assistant basketball coach Jimmy Martelli resigned Wednesday, the university told CNN.

The school fired head basketball coach Mike Rice on Wednesday, days after ESPN broadcast a lengthy video showing him physically and verbally abusing players.

Martelli, the son of longtime St. Joseph’s coach Phil Martelli, joined the Rutgers staff in May 2010 after three seasons as an assistant at Robert Morris.
