Finally, some closure.
Kyle Flood suspended 3 games as Rutgers coach http://t.co/GPQbkWhRXE— Keith Sargeant (@KSargeantNJ) September 16, 2015
Kyle Flood has been suspended for the next 3 games as the Rutgers head football coach. This is the conclusion of the highly-criticized "emailgate" investigation. The suspension is also related to the string of off-the-field issues that have plagued this team in past month. Flood has also been fined $50,000. The news was first broken by Keith Sargeant of NJ.com, who has been breaking almost all of the news regarding this situation in the past few weeks.
Steve Politi is also releasing new info and it doesn't look good. Three games at this point seems like a good deal for Kyle Flood.
The details are coming now. Flood not only emailed the professor, but had an in-person meeting -- and this was after he was told not to.— Steve Politi (@StevePoliti) September 16, 2015
Good grief. Flood even "provided grammatical and minor editorial suggestions" to a paper in hopes of getting Nadir Barnwell eligible.— Steve Politi (@StevePoliti) September 16, 2015
Norries Wilson, the assistant head coach, seems to be the frontrunner to replace Flood in his absence.
UPDATE: President Robert Barchi has released a statement via email
