Rutgers Football Coaching Search: Temple Coach Steve Addazio Reportedly Not Leaving Owls

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights interviewed interim head coach Kyle Flood for the full time job Saturday. Flood is among the reported finalists to replace Greg Schiano for the job. Today it appears that one of the finalists, Temple Owls head coach Steve Addazio, is out of the running.

Addazio is reportedly staying at Temple.

"He's not going to Rutgers," said one source with inside knowledge. (via Philly.com)

Multiple sources have reported that the initial list of finalists consisted of Addazio, Flood, Rutgers offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, FIU head coach Mario Cristobal and New York Giants offensive line coach Pat Flaherty.

Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti said that having a new head coach in place by college football's national signing day (Feb. 1) was "doable."
