Dave Brock To Rutgers

New Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood has reached into his past to find the school's next offensive coordinator.

Dave Brock, a Moorestown native who was the interim offensive coordinator at Boston College last fall and has held that position at Kansas State, Temple and Hofstra, will be named the Scarlet Knights' offensive coordinator, replacing Frank Cignetti, possibly by the end of the week, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The person requested anonymity because the hiring is not official yet.

In addition, according to two people familiar with Rutgers' plans, Western Michigan defensive coordinator Dave Cohen, the former head coach at Hofstra, is also expected to be added to Flood's revamped staff. Cohen's role remains uncertain, though his strength is as a linebackers coach.

Those people also requested anonymity because the official announcement has not been made yet.

Brock, the tight ends coach for Boston College in 2009 and 2010, became the Eagles' interim offensive coordinator when Kevin Rogers took a leave of absence in mid-September for health reasons.

Brock coached at Hofstra in a variety of roles from 1997 to 2001, where he was on the same staff as Flood for that time.

A linebacker at Ferrum (Va.) and a graduate of Salisbury (Md.) University, Brock coached Josh Freeman and Jordy Nelson as Kansas State's offensive coordinator, and also coached Hakeem Nicks as North Carolina's wide receivers coach in 2005-06.

He has coached both pro-style and spread offenses during his career.
