Even before the messy situation at Rutgers is settled, Kyle Flood has found a new home. The ex-Rutgers coach is now an assistant offensive line coach for the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced Friday.
Flood worked with Falcons coach Dan Quinn at Hofstra in the late 1990s.
Flood coached at Rutgers from 2012-2015, going 27-24 with a pair of eight-win seasons and three bowl appearances. He was suspended three games in 2015 for trying to get CB Nadir Barnwell’s grade changed on a test.
In addition to Flood meddling in academics, allegations against Rutgers include failed drug tests that were disregarded and lack of supervision of the program’s recruiting hostess program.
Flood rose up the ranks as an offensive line coach.
