A veteran offensive line coach, including the last two years at Alabama, and former head coach at Rutgers, Kyle Flood was named offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Texas. Flood spent the last two seasons coaching the offensive line at Alabama alongside Steve Sarkisian, guiding this past year’s group to earn the 2020 Joe Moore Award as the nation’s top unit. The line paved the way one of the top offenses in Alabama history that propelled the Crimson Tide to the National Championship. In the past two seasons, Alabama put together 24 straight games in which the offense scored 35 or more points, the longest streak in major college football history. Alabama's offense ranked second in the nation in scoring and led all Power 5 schools. Alabama’s passing efficiency rating was not only a school record, but the second-best mark in NCAA history.
At Rutgers, He became the first head coach in school history to lead the program to three bowl appearances in his first three seasons at the helm. Flood’s first year as head coach at Rutgers was as memorable as any in Scarlet Knights football history. He guided Rutgers to its first Big East Championship, earned Big East Coach of the Year honors and won more games than any rookie head coach in school history.
