Watch: Rutgers’s interim coach holds eccentric press conference

Sunday September 20th, 2015

Rutgers interim head coach Norries Wilson held a strange press conference after the team’s 28–3 loss to Penn State.

“Do I pick a person, or do they just pull lottery tickets, or what do they got?” Wilson asked as he sat down at the podium.

“You yell over each other? Well, we’re not going to do that.”

Wilson went around the room and called on individual reporters one at time, asking their names and affiliations.

Then, when an a reporter referred to suspended Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood as “Flood,” Wison demanded he refer to him as “Coach Flood.”

Flood was suspended for three games and fined $30,000 on Wednesday for violating team rules when he contacted a professor in regards to the academic eligibility of one of his players.
