Ray rice question prompts angry response from rutgers coach kyle flood
Flood played high school football as a high school teammate of former Rutgers All-American tight end Marco Battaglia at St. Francis Preparatory School.
Flood, a 1993 graduate of Iona College, was a four-year letterwinner for the Gaels. Flood earned first team All-Liberty Conference honors in 1991 and served as team captain of the Gaels in 1992.
Flood was hired as the offensive line coach for the Scarlet Knights in 2005. In 2008, he was promoted to assistant head coach under Greg Schiano. On January 31, 2012, Flood was hired to replace Schiano, who had been named the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' head coach.
Inaugural season in the Big Ten
The team went 4-0 in non-conference play with wins over Washington State, Howard, Navy, and Tulane. Flood led the Scarlet Knights to his first ever bowl victory and the sixth overall for Rutgers over the North Carolina Tar Heels, 40-21 in the inaugural Quick Lane Bowl, giving Rutgers a respectable 8-5 record in its first Big Ten season.
Controversies, 2015 season
The 2015 football season was marred by alleged misconduct by Flood and the arrests on violent felony criminal charges of several players. There were doubts that Flood would be coaching the season opener and some speculation amongst news media and fans about the possibility of Flood's firing or resignation. The 15-member Rutgers Board of Governors, one of the school's two governing bodies, met with university president Robert Barchi on September 11 in a closed-door emergency session to discuss ongoing "athletic matters" and the potential for litigation.
On February 17, 2017, Flood was hired by the Atlanta Falcons to be the assistant offensive line coach.
