Alabama is looking for a new offensive line coach, and a former Rutgers head coach has reportedly emerged as a candidate.

Per AL.com's Matt Zenitz, Kyle Flood interviewed for the offensive line vacancy in Tuscaloosa on Monday. Flood has spent the last two season as the assistant offensive line coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

Earlier this month, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Flood would be moving into an in-game management role.

Flood was Rutgers' head coach from 2012-15. He compiled a 27-24 overall record and reached three bowl games during that span. However, Flood and his staff were found responsible of a number of NCAA violations under his watch, which left Rutgers with a two-year probation penalty.

Prior to taking over for Greg Schiano at Rutgers, Flood was the offensive line coach for the Scarlet Knights from 2005-11. He also served as the assistant head coach from 2008-11.

Flood was also Rutgers' co-offensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010.
