Report: Kyle Flood Hires Offensive Coordinator And Running Back Coach From Boston College

According to reports from College Football Talk's Ben Kercheval, new Rutgers Scarlet Knights football head coach Kyle Flood is pursuing two new coaches for his staff, both of whom would be coming from Boston College if they accept the job. The first is BC tight ends coach and interm offensive coordinator Dave Brock, who, if the reports are correct, would be taking over the Rutgers offensive coordinator position.

The Newark Star-Ledger writes that Rutgers is looking at acting Boston College offensive coordinator/tight ends coach Dave Brock to replace Cignetti. Brock, as you may recall, took over the OC job for Boston College when Kevin Rogers took a leave of absence for health reasons last year. Brock was previously the OC for Kansas State where he coach Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman and Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson.

The other coach from Boston College that has been linked to a possible job at Rutgers is running backs coach Ben Sirmans, who would be leaving BC to take the same job with Rutgers.

According to the report, the Scarlet Knights have also been linked to Ron Spence, who would serve as the team's quarterback coach.

Additionally, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Bethune-Cookman offensive coordinator Ron Spence will join Rutgers as the new quarterbacks coach.

If these reports are true, Brock, Sirmans and Spence would join Dave Cohen, the new linebackers coach, and Damian Wroblewski, the new offensive line coach, on the new Rutgers coaching staff.
