Finally, some closure.

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.

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
