Rutgers fires HC Kyle Flood and AD Julie Hermann


Rutgers University has fired head coach Kyle Flood and athletic director Julie Hermann, per a report from ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

Ryan Dunleavy of The Asbury Park Press reported that Herman was fired at president Robert Barchi’s house in a private meeting. Her time at the university was mired by controversy, from rumors of her mistreating players while head volleyball coach at Tennessee to comments she made about Jerry Sandusky to her saying that Rutgers’ student paper should “go under.”

The same can be said for Flood, who leaves East Brunswick with a head coaching record of 27-24 in four seasons. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season after it was uncovered that he defied orders from university officials and reached out to a professor regarding the academic eligibility of a player. Multiple Rutgers players also had off-field issues this season, ranging from accusations of everything from robbery to domestic violence.

Needless to say, Rutgers’ next move will be hiring an AD who will run a tight ship and not have a checkered past. At that point, they can then find a new head coach.
