Rutgers reportedly looking to Boston College for next OC

Even with Greg Schiano out and former Scarlet Knights offensive line coach Kyle Flood in as new head coach, Rutgers reportedly still isn’t done with the coaching shuffle.

Earlier this afternoon, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported that Scarlet Knights offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti was leaving to take the same job with the St. Louis Rams.

The Newark Star-Ledger writes that Rutgers is looking at acting Boston College offensive coordinator/tight ends coach Dave Brock to replace Cignetti. Brock, as you may recall, took over the OC job for Boston College when Kevin Rogers took a leave of absence for health reasons last year. Brock was previously the OC for Kansas State where he coach Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman and Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson.

Flood is still in the middle of putting Rutgers’ coaching staff together. Brief NIU OC P.J. Fleck (receivers), Bob Fraser (linebackers), Brian Angelichio (tight ends) and Jeff Haley (defensive backs) have all joined Schiano with the Bucs.

    “Earlier this afternoon, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported that Scarlet Knights offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti was leaving to take the same job with the St. Louis Rams.”

    I’m assuming you meant QB coach. Isn’t Brian Scottenheimer the new OC for the Rams?

    I’m a little concerned the coaching staff Coach Flood has assembled is not as strong as the prior group. I hope I’m incorrect. losing Coach Cignetti is not good at all. He was a tremendous recruiter and play caller. He will be missed.
