PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers is hoping former Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen can help get the Scarlet Knights ready for the Big Ten.
Friedgen spent 10 years as head coach at Maryland before he was fired coming off a 9-4 season in 2010.
In a career that spans 42 years and took him from a national championship team (Georgia Tech, 1990) to a Super Bowl team (San Diego Chargers, 1994), the 67-year-old Fridge has pretty much seen it all.
Rutgers coach Kyle Flood hired Friedgen to be offensive coordinator in January to fix a quarterback and make the offense more creative.
As a bonus, Friedgen has also been a sounding board and sage for Flood.
Flood says he wasn't looking for a mentor when he was trying to hire an offensive coordinator, but he acknowledges it's nice to tap into Friedgen's wealth of knowledge, whether it's on player issues, end of game strategy or practice schedules.
Flood said: ''Those conversations to me are invaluable.''
Friedgen had been out of the business since Maryland fired him with a 75-50 record and seven bowl appearances.
