Flood previously joined Rutgers in 2005 as the offensive line coach. He held that title and various other ones during his tenure, earning the role of assistant head coach under Schiano.
After Schiano’s first departure to the NFL, Flood took over for the Scarlet Knights. He went 27-24 in four years as the head coach at Rutgers, including going 1-2 in bowl games, but a disastrous 2015 both on and off the field led to his firing.
After his firing, Flood’s next job was as an assistant offensive line coach as a part of Sarkisian’s offensive staff with the Atlanta Falcons in 2017.
