Rutgers Hit With Probation From the NCAA
Rutgers has been the latest program to be hit with probation from the NCAA after they deemed the Scarlet Nights to of failed to monitor their football program appropriately.
Rutgers will be on probation for two years until 2019.
The allegations stem from the tenure of Kyle Flood and during his time as the head football coach, the NCAA believes he administered a “casual approach” to the rules during his time at Rutgers.
So what does it mean for Rutgers? Basically don’t do it again or the NCAA will really punish you.
The University already had implemented some self imposed sanctions which apparently were enough for the NCAA really not to add anymore penalties other than the probation.
As for former head coach Kyle Flood who now is an assistant with the Atlanta Falcons, if he were to try and get a job in college before the probation runs out, he and the new school would have to show why he should be hired after what happened.
Chris Ash currently is the head football coach at Rutgers.
