Rutgers' Kyle Flood appears in sit-down interview with Big Ten Network
Rutgers' Kyle Flood made his first appearance on the Big Ten Network on Thursday night with host Gerry DiNardo.
Here are some highlights of the four-minute interview, taped earlier this spring in Rutgers' Hale Center:
On Flood's coaching influences: "To work for Greg (Schiano) was a huge influence on my career here. He gave me an opportunity to see on a very intimate level the way a major college football program runs."
On joining Penn State and Maryland in the East Division: "There's no doubt it's going to change East Coast football."
On the allure of Big Ten membership: "The thing I'm most excited about in joining the Big Ten is having a streamlined vision of how to get to the national championship. I don't know that we could have said that in the conferences we were in in the past. It's hard to see a four-team format that doesn't include the Big Ten champion as we go forward into this new era of having a college football playoff."
