VIDEO: Kyle Flood announced as head coach to team

Posted by Chip Patterson

When Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti was charged with the task of replacing Greg Schiano on short notice, one of his first interviews was offensive line and interim head coach Kyle Flood. In a 48 hour span, Flood was named the next head coach of the program and signed the only Top 25 recruiting class in the Big East.

Flood, the longest tenured assistant on Schiano's staff, was also a popular choice for the current roster. ScarletKnights.com provided this exclusive behind the scenes look at Flood's official introduction to the team after being hired as head coach.

VIDEO: Eric LeGrand leads Rutgers onto the field

Posted by Chip Patterson

The snow-covered fans who braved the weather to attend Saturday's Big East showdown between Rutgers and West Virginia are already being rewarded with fireworks. The Scarlet Knights finished the first quarter leading 17-14, in a game that already has outscored last week's loss to Louisville.  You can follow the rest of the action HERE.

But the real treat for Rutgers fans was seeing the team led onto the field by Eric LeGrand. The former defensive tackle wore his No. 52 jersey as he directed his motorized chair out of the tunnel and towards midfield. It was LeGrand's first time back on a game field since suffering the neck injury last October that left him paralyzed from the neck down. LeGrand will join the ABC crew in the announcer's booth for the second half, he has recently been working as an analyst for the Rutgers radio network.
