The parents of Tyler Clementi on Wednesday said they supported the decision of Rutgers University to fire basketball coach Mike Rice.
In a statement, the family applauded the decision and said "coach Rice's conduct has no place on a campus that is devoted to learning and fostering a sense of community."
"We know Rutgers is such a place, and, like all colleges and universities, it must not tolerate that kind of behavior."
Clementi committed suicide after he was the victim of cyber-bullying.
The family says since his death, Rutgers leadership has worked with their foundation to create protocols that ensure a safe environment for students.
