Flood revealed during a telephone press conference that his mother Louise passed away as Rutgers lost to West Virginia 13-10 on Friday, December 28 according to MyCentralJersey.com.

“For me to use that in any way as an excuse … certainly when the people you love are in pain, it’s on your mind but I also know the one thing that would’ve hurt my mother more than anything would be to know that she was keeping me from doing my job,” said Flood.

He credited his mother for making him the person he is today and said she was a very important person in his life.

Flood expects the loss to act as motivation for his team for next season. “For the players coming back in the program that game needs to be at the front of their mind and it needs to be a motivating factor of ours as we go into the offseason.”

On football matters, Flood said he does not expect any other players to file for the NFL draft. He also expects his coaching staff to remain the same for next season.
