Rutgers Interviews Kyle Flood For Head Coach

Trying to replace former football coach Greg Schiano, who is now head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights have started their search for a replacement very late in the game, but they've already got an interim coach in Kyle Flood who appears to have a good shot at nailing down the permanent job after interviewing for it Saturday.

Flood talked to the Newark Star-Ledger at the Rutgers-Cincinnati basketball game that night to talk about it, and he sounded pretty confident.

"Well, I've been working 19 years for this day today," Flood said. "I think it was John Wooden who said it. Or maybe Bill Walsh. You're never ready for your first head coaching job but I'm as ready as I'm going to be. This has been 19 years in the making."

Flood is battling four other candidates for the Rutgers job, according to the Star-Ledger, in with Temple coach Steve Addazio, FIU coach Mario Cristobal and Giants offensive line coach Pat Flaherty among them.
