Rutgers coach Kyle Flood has his second piece of major hardware to add to his trophy case as a head coach. To go along with his share of the Big East title, Flood now shares Big East Coach of the Year honors with Louisville coach Charlie Strong.

The 2012 season was a year of firsts for Flood, who was a lifetime assistant before taking over for Greg Schiano in the winter. Flood brought Rutgers a share of its first Big East title by going 9-3, 5-2 this season.

After falling short of a BCS bid, Flood still has Rutgers in it most prestigious bowl game to date. Facing Virginia Tech in the Russell Athletic Bowl, he has his sights set on the third 10-win season in school history.

“Great programs are sometimes defined by their 10-win seasons,” Flood said Sunday night. “I think this is an excellent opportunity for us to send our seniors out the right way, not just as the first team in history to win a share of the Big East title, but one of only three 10-plus win teams in the history of our program.”
