Rutgers fills out more of its coaching staff

Kyle Flood AP

New Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood continues to fill out his coaching staff as the Scarlet Knights begin looking toward spring practice.

Following reports that former Boston College tight ends coach/interim offensive coordinator Dave Brock would become Rutgers’ new OC, Flood has reportedly made an offer to another BC assistant. The Newark Star-Ledger reports that BC running backs coach Ben Sirmans will take the same role at Rutgers, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Additionally, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Bethune-Cookman offensive coordinator Ron Spence will join Rutgers as the new quarterbacks coach.

These two hires, if indeed true, would be in addition to Dave Cohen, formerly of Western Michigan and hired as linebackers coach, and former Delaware offensive line coach Damian Wroblewski, who will take over the same position.

    @ Tim Pernetti

    Congratulations on promoting a terrific HC in Kyle Flood and retaining the finest recruiting class in RU history. I hope your next item on the agenda is to gain entrance into either the Big 10 or ACC. Call me an elitist, but I am not happy with the academic company we are about to keep on the football side. I’m not at all disappointed that WVa has departed. But replacing that institution with Memphis University from an academic standpoint is like replacing Cornell in the Ivy League with Blinn Jr. College where “Scam Newton” played. I like RU athletics……but I LOVE RU’s academics and don’t want it diminished by the company we keep.

    Are you a dreamer? Academics has nothing to do with football prowress. If so why isn’t Harvard in the top 10. When has Rutgers done anything that the ACC or SEC or Big 10 would want to include them into the party?

    Am I a dreamer? Are you a DUMMY? Apparently so. It’s proximity to a place called NEW YORK CITY and all those folks that watch RU on TV. Greater viewership than Syracuse or UCONN. A member of the prestigious AAU. It’s called incremental revenue. But I guess you were a history major……

    If you were a student of History, you could appreciate what I’m talking about. With all that you have brought up, how many NC’s has Rutgers won or even top ten finishes. Where is the flaw? Every story has one.

    A woman’s Nat’l Championship – AIAW – Theresa Grentz. Who cares how many Nat’l Championships the school has won? How many has Vandy won? Northwestern? Illinois? WVa? Virginia? Who cares!! It’s entertainment and pride in your school. I’ve enjoyed attending many RU athletic events. Haven’t won all of them but have had a good time at all of them. Wake Forest hasn’t won any; Clemson has one once and then put on probation; Miss St. and Ole Miss haven’t one a Nat’l Championship but I am sure they enjoy going to the games. I just don’t want RU in the same league as USF, Central Fla, Memphis, Louisville, etc. These are not prestigious AAU affiliated schools. That is my point and my only point. I would like them to win but that is not paramount to me as an RU fan. Sorry, that’s just how I feel.

    Sounds like you have a “Country Club” mentality. You only want to play with those you feel are worthy to be with. Kinda Snobbish. The bottom to all this as far as the powers to be is…..Ka Ching.

    Now you got it! I said call me an elitist. I don’t want to be associated with schools that don’t have the academic standards of Rutgers. That’s the way I feel. Thats my right.
