CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - There’s no question that coaching styles have changed over the last 20 to 30 years.

Ever since the video of Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice came out in April showing him verbally and physically abusing his players, it has raised the question of how far coaches can go with their players.

In part two of this series, TV9’s Josh Christensen speaks with local eastern Iowa coaches on what methods are used today to communicate with players and how some coaches have evolved themselves.
