Interim coach Kyle Flood interviewed for the head coaching job to replace Greg Schiano at Rutgers.

Schiano stepped down Thursday to take over the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Flood said that none of the 17 high school players who committed to Rutgers have changed their mind before national signing day. "The response from the recruiting class is just tremendous," Flood said at an impromptu news conference at halftime of Saturday's Cincinnati-Rutgers game.

"As of now, everyone who committed to us from the beginning is still committed to us. And we intend on keeping it that way." Flood added that he thought his interview went very well as he goes after his first head coaching job.
