Basketball coach Mike Rice, athletic director Tim Pernetti and a university lawyer received severances worth between $420,000 and $1.2 million. Rice was fired after a video of him throwing balls at players and hurling gay slurs aired on ESPN.

Barchi is being called before the panel Thursday to answer questions about $487 million in state aid to Rutgers.

The panel is also planning a separate hearing on the Rutgers scandal.

Barchi will also be asked to explain why the university’s Newark and Camden campuses don’t have their own budgets after a law was signed last year requiring fiscal autonomy.
