The Rutgers administration is not playing around, as President Robert Barchi has cleaned house. He fired head coach Kyle Flood.
Besides firing Flood, he also fired athletic director Julie Hermann. On Friday, it was speculated that this day may be coming.
Flood’s final game with the team was a 46-41 loss to the 3-9 Maryland Terrapins. That loss dropped this year’s record to 4-8 overall.
He was 27-24 during his four-year tenure after taking over for Greg Schiano. Once he left to take the Tampa Bay Buccaneers job, Rutgers promoted from within to hire Flood as the head coach.
He had two winning and two losing seasons during his stay. However, this season was his worst for a number of reasons.
He was suspended for lying about his role about meeting with a professor about attempting to make a football players grade improve. If he didn’t do this, the player in question would have been ruled academically ineligible.
He was suspended three games and fined $50,000 for that incident in September. Then when associate head coach Norries Wilson took over for his first game, his post-game interview was very strange by all accounts.
Flood has been at the school since 2005 serving in several positions. Hermann came to the school in 2013 after serving as the Senior Associate Director with the Louisville Cardinals.
Flood was the assistant head coach and offensive line coach before taking over for Schiano.
She was the first female Athletic Director and took over for Tim Pernetti when he resigned following the Mike Rice Jr. mess. Rice Jr. was the men’s basketball head coach before Eric Murdock blew the whistle on his treatment of the players in practice.
She was making $450,000 per year, and signed a contract in May 2013 that goes until June 2018.
This news comes after quarterback Chris Laviano went off on social media last night following the loss to Maryland. In the Instagram post, he wrote that Flood and offensive coordinator Ben McDaniels were “here to stay.”
