The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have named assistant head coach and offensive line coach Kyle Flood their interim head coach after Greg Schiano's departure for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Flood has been with Rutgers since 2006, when he came aboard after coaching at Delaware and Hofstra.
@JasonBaumRU Rutgers Director of Athletics Tim Pernetti has appointed Kyle Flood interim head coach. News conference at 4:30 p.m.
The move doesn't preclude the school naming another head coach, but with signing day less than a week away, it wouldn't be shocking to see Flood remain in charge for the entire 2012 season. Rutgers has some tough choices to make in the coming days, though it's hard to imagine they hadn't already worked up a list of candidates back during Schiano's various appearances in earlier coaching rumors.
