PISCATAWAY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Take Rutgers coach Kyle Flood off the hot seat.
Rutgers gave Flood a two-year contract extension Thursday after the Scarlet Knights opened the football season with two wins.
Athletic director Julie Hermann announced the deal two days before the Scarlet Knights (2-0) play their first Big Ten Conference game against Penn State (2-0).
“Kyle Flood is a tremendous coach for our football team and has earned the opportunity to lead us into the Big Ten and build on our program successes,” Hermann said. “With the generosity of private funding, we are pleased to invest in our head coach and our entire staff at a level more consistent with our Big Ten peers.”
On Thursday, Flood chatted with WFAN host Mike Francesa about his extension, the future of the program and the upcoming game against Penn State.
