Catching up with Rutgers' Kyle Flood

ESPN caught up with Kyle Flood to talk his interview with Athletic Director Tim Pernetti and what will change under his leadership.

Flood says that during his interview with Pernetti he told him that "...in our profession secrets are not very well kept. I know you’re going to talk to some coaches. On paper, they're good football coaches. But I can tell you this: there's nobody better for this job than me, and nobody who will care more for Rutgers football than me."

When Flood was asked what will change under his leadership, he responded by saying that the core values of the program will stay the same, but his coaching personality is different than Schiano's.

"I want to take the things that are really good and I want to make them great. It’s not a situation where the head coach was let go because they weren’t winning. This is a team that's won five straight bowl games in the last six years. This is a really good team and we want to advance it forward."

Flood added that you accomplish that by "taking the little things and making them better".
