Rutgers fires 3 assistants; AD supports Flood

Rutgers has fired defensive coordinator Dave Cohen, quarterbacks

coach Rob Spence and offensive line coach Damian Wroblewski.

Scarlet Knights coach Kyle Flood says in a statement released

Sunday that the three will not coach in the Pinstripe bowl against

Notre Dame on Dec. 28 at Yankee Stadium.

Special teams coach Joe Rossi will run the defense on an interim

basis and offensive coordinator Ron Prince will handle quarterback

coach duties.

The Scarlet Knights (6-6) finished a disappointing regular

season with a 31-6 victory over USF on Saturday.

Athletic director Julie Hermann says she supports the moves and

Flood’s ”leadership” as the school transitions to the Big Ten

next year.

Cohen’s defense allowed a school-record 3,737 yards passing.

Also, a former Rutgers player accused Cohen of mistreating him.
