Texas Offensive Line Coach Kyle Flood Considered for Boston College Head Coaching Position?

The Texas Longhorns could face the departure of another key assistant coach as Kyle Flood, currently the offensive line coach, is reportedly being considered for the head coaching position at Boston College. The prospect of losing assistant coaches to head coaching roles is often seen as a positive indicator of a program’s success.

Much like Nick Saban, who has developed numerous head coaches, Texas Head Coach Steve Sarkisian has also witnessed some of his staff members progress to more prominent roles. Recent reports suggest that Flood’s name has emerged as a potential candidate for the head coaching vacancy at Boston College, following the surprising decision by Jeff Hafley to become the defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. Hafley, along with other respected coaches like Saban, has expressed dissatisfaction with the current state of college football, particularly citing concerns about NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) and the transfer portal.

If Flood were to secure the head coaching position at Boston College, it would mark his second opportunity as a head coach. Previously, he served as the head coach at Rutgers from 2012 to 2015, where he achieved a 26-22 record before being dismissed. Losing Flood, who not only coaches the offensive line but is also regarded as a top recruiter for the Longhorns, would be a significant setback for the program. Texas has already experienced losses with Jeff Choate, who is now the head coach at Nevada, and Bo Davis, who recently joined LSU.

Flood’s contributions as the primary recruiter for five-star prospects DJ Campbell, Brandon Baker, and Kelvin Banks, as well as leading the charge for four-stars Neto Umeozulu, Sydir Mitchell, and Cameron Williams, highlight his impact. Hailing from Queens, New York, Flood is familiar with the Northeast region and has extensive experience with Rutgers, having been part of their coaching staff from 2005 to 2015. The potential departure of Flood would undoubtedly pose a significant challenge for Texas.
