Rutgers football coach Kyle Flood was suspended three games and fined $50k after violating the University’s policy, which prohibits the coach from making contact with any faculty members regarding a student’s academic status.
According to the Rutgers investigative report, Flood had frequent contact with the player’s instructor via e-mail and in-person meetings, in effort to have a grade changed.
This latest incident is just one of a few issues recently surrounding the Rutgers football program, as six players were kicked off the team within the past two-weeks after arrests. Their star wide receiver was also suspended last week. It will be interesting to see how Rutgers deals with the leadership of their football program going forth.
