Kyle Flood Officially Replacing Greg Schiano As Rutgers Head Coach

Kyle Flood is no longer the interim head coach of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. He's been officially named as Greg Schiano's replacement, and will be introduced at a 1:30 p.m. ET press conference. Might not be the most thrilling hire -- though it will end up saving a broke athletic department quite a bit of money -- but it's the best option Rutgers had left after reportedly being spurned by FIU coach Mario Cristobal.

With National Signing Day now less than one day away, Flood's task remains pretty much the same thing it has been for the past week: trying to keep Darius Hamilton and others from evacuating one of the program's best classes ever.

Flood has been on the Rutgers staff for the past seven years. This is his first head coaching job, though he's also held coordinator duties before.
