Meet the Staff: OL Coach Damian Wroblewski

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood hinted at his replacement on the offensive line within 24 hours of his official hiring. Flood, who has a long-standing relationship with Wroblewski, called him the best in the country at what he does today while announcing his staff.

Newly hired offensive line coach Damian Wroblewski is in his first job at the FBS level, but coach Kyle Flood said the former Delaware line coach is more than ready for the job.

Speaking in a teleconference after officially announcing most of his first coaching staff, Flood raved about Wroblewski's ability as an offensive line coach.

"Wrobo has been working side-by-side with me for over seven years now at camps in the summer time during recruiting periods," Flood said. "He's the best in the country. I believe that in all my heart. That will show itself as we go forward in this program."

Wroblewski comes to Rutgers after five years at FCS powerhouse Delaware. Before coaching with the Blue Hens, he worked at Hofstra.

"We have some talented linemen in our program and he will get the best out of them the same way he did for Willie Colon when he was at Hofstra," Flood said.

Wrobewlski is not new to Rutgers or the football program. While with Delaware, he frequented Rutgers camp to work with Flood in coaching offensive linemen.

While working under Flood at camps, he quickly earned the new head coach's respect with his ability.

"I've had the opportunity to see a lot of these guys in camp and have an idea of who they are physically," Wroblewski said. "That's obviously an advantage. With anything, proximity always helps. Me not being far away, this is a logical resource for me to use to create ideas to help me be a better coach."

Wroblewski is familiar with many Rutgers offensive linemen from the camp circuit and recruiting at Delaware. In his first season, he gets to coach one of the strongest incoming lineman classes in the country, featuring J.J. Denman, Chris Muller, Ryan Brodie, Brandon Arcidiacono and Derrick Nelson.

"[I see] the kids that are coming here and playing here being very successful," Wrobewlski said.
