Their only win this season came against the Texas State Bobcats in the season-opener. The Scarlet Knights won 35-7 on Saturday, September 1st.

On Dec. 7, 2015, Ash agreed to a five-year, $11 million deal to become the Rutgers head football coach. He made $2 million as a rookie head coach in 2016. He’s making $2.2 million this season.

In three seasons, he has a 7-28 record in 35 games. His best season came during the 2017 season when he guided the team to a 4-8 record.

The Scarlet Knights have not had a one-win season since the 2002 season. In that campaign, they went 1-11 under former head coach Greg Schiano.
