Report: Ex-Rutgers head coach a candidate to land assistant job at Alabama
Former Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood is a strong candidate to become the next offensive line coach at Alabama, according to a report.
AL.com reported that Flood is in the mix to fill the vacancy on the Crimson Tide’s staff and was in Tuscaloosa on Monday for an interview. He’s spent the last two seasons in the NFL as an assistant on the Atlanta Falcons’ staff.
Flood was previously the head coach at Rutgers from 2012-2015. In his four seasons in Piscataway, the Scarlet Knights went 27-24 and appeared in three bowl games. Before becoming the head coach, Flood spent seven seasons with the program in various assistant roles.
At the end of the 2015 season, Flood was fired due to on-field performance and off-field issues surrounding the program.
Alabama is looking to fill a slew of assistant vacancies after several coaches left at the end of the 2018 campaign.
