CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The video showing Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice verbally and physically abusing his players back in April schocked several coaches here in eastern Iowa.

Ever since the release of the video, other coaches have been or are being investigated for their coaching methods. The video has also raised the question of whether old school coaching methods work in today's society.

In a two-part series, TV9's Josh Christensen speaks with several eastern Iowa coaches on how coaching styles have changed in the last few years.
