Earlier: Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood has been suspended three games and fined $50, 000 "following a university-led investigation into rules violations and amid a recent string of off-field transgressions involving players on his team" according to NJ.com's Keith Sargeant

Flood will miss the Scarlet Knights' next three games, starting with Penn State on Saturday night in Happy Valley. He'll also be suspended for home contests against Kansas and nationally-ranked Michigan State.

Flood's suspension caps off a tumultuous stretch for the RU program, beginning with Flood being investigated for impermissable faculty contact. Since then, five Rutgers players have been dismissed for participating in assaults or home invasions and star wide receiver Leonte Carroo has been suspended indefinitely and charged with simple assault under domestic violence for his role in an altercation that took place following last Saturday's loss to Washington State. 

It seems like associate head coach Norries Wilson would be the logical choice to fill-in for Flood. Wilson has head coaching experience at Columbia from 2006-11. 

Things have been better on the Banks of the Raritan, that's for sure.
