ABC reported Monday that Rutgers, Rice's alma mater, will no longer include him in promotional materials.

The altercation occurred inside an elevator at the Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City on Feb. 15. Rice pleaded not guilty to an aggravated assault charge and avoided trial.

He was recently approved to enter a pre-trial intervention program.
