Rutgers Football Coaching Search: Kyle Flood Reportedly Will Be New Head Coach

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have found a new head coach, according to a report (via NJ.com). The school turned to interim head coach Kyle Flood today after a deal could not be reached with FIU head coach Mario Cristobal.

Flood has coached the offensive line at Rutgers since 2005 but was promoted to interim head coach after Greg Schiano left to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL.

The Rutgers Board of Governors has a conference call scheduled for noon Tuesday, according to a person informed of the university's intentions, at which time Flood is expected to be approved as the new coach.

This will be Flood's first head coaching job. The certainty of having a coach who was on Schiano's staff lead the way appears to have already made a positive impact on recruiting. Two prized linemen told Scout.com that they will sign with Rutgers after hearing about the Flood hire (via Sam Hellman's Twitter).
