Rutgers coach Kyle Flood's immediate coaching staff is near completion and set to be announced tomorrow morning. has all of the names and backgrounds of Flood's first staff as a head coach and takes an in-depth at the final few additions to the staff coming late this week.

Kyle Flood makes his first staff official tomorrow, working around the clock since his hiring to replace the large number of assistants leaving Rutgers for the NFL.

Digging deep into his connections with almost 20 years of coaching experience, Flood will be ready to announce his staff tomorrow.

Continuing its staff analysis, looks at the final set of coaches.

Darnell Dinkins

Past Experience: 10 years with five NFL teams including New York Giants and New Orleans Saints.

Expected Role: TE coach

Reputation: Dinkins is easily the least experienced position coach joining Flood's staff, but brings things no other coach on the staff does. Dinkins is young, hungry and has been in the NFL since graduating from Pittsburgh in 2001. Dinkins, 35, has a Super Bowl ring with the Saints in his final year in the league.

Recruiting Impact: Aside from the obvious Super Bowl ring, Dinkins has a youth and energy that can relate to recruits. Dinkins is from Pittsburgh and is expected to have a role in recruiting Pennsylvania and in tight ends, which is a top target for Rutgers in 2013.

Ben Sirmans

Past Experience: Boston College RB coach (2007-present), Michigan State assistant (2005-06), Kent State RB coach (2000-05)

Expected Role: RB coach

Reputation: Sirmans replaces Chris Hewitt as the running backs coach and has the chance to work with top young talents Savon Huggins, Jawan Jamison, Paul James and Desmon Peoples. Unlike Hewitt, who coached multiple areas at Rutgers, Sirmans has been all about running back since he started there at Maine under Kirk Ferentz.

Recruiting Impact: Sirmans is another Boston College coach with ties to North Jersey. He worked with Don Bosco's Brian Toal in his final two years with the Eagles and is well known by the many local teams that camp at Boston College each season. More importantly, Sirmans hails from East Orange, N.J., and grew up in the Garden State.
