Quarterbacks dominated the conversation Monday for Rutgers football head coach Kyle Flood, who discussed sophomores Hayden Rettig and Chris Laviano in battle for the vacant starting job. Flood also detailed the transition out of Ralph Friedgen and into Ben McDaniels at offensive coordinator.
"To me it looked like we took advantage of the winter," Flood said. "It looked like they took advantage of the opportunity that they had without the coaching staff to go out there and throw and catch. When we were working in individual, working in 7-on-7, it was pretty clean."
Flood also acknowledged E.J. Barthel's promotion to director of recruiting.
"EJ is a guy who is very passionate about New Jersey, very passionate about Rutgers football," Flood said. "He had a lot of relationships already, which I think is a positive in college athletics."
