Rutgers fires athletic director Julie Hermann, coach Kyle Flood
The Scarlet Knights lost 46–41 to Maryland on Saturday, finishing their season at 4–8. In four seasons with the school, Flood is 27–24.
Both Flood and Hermann’s tenures have been marked with controversies. A university investigation earlier this year revealed Flood tried to circumvent the school’s academic process by contacting a professor to help gain a player’s eligibility. Flood was fined $50,000 and suspended for three games.
Hermann came under fire for comments she made about journalists losing their jobs, was criticized for her handling of Jevon Tyree’s departure from the football team and was found to be accused of abusing players while volleyball coach at Tennessee.
