Class in Rutgers Football Scandal Was 'Easy A'

September 21, 2015

New information has come out about the Rutgers University course after which a football player with a poor grade set off a scandal. Rutgers on Wednesday suspended its head football coach, Kyle Flood, for three games and fined him $50,000 after a university investigation found that he violated Rutgers rules by contacting a faculty member about the academic eligibility of one of his players in an attempt to improve the player's grade. The Rutgers report on the incident didn't reveal the course. But NJ.com is reporting that that coach's interference came in a dance appreciation course that is widely seen on campus as an "easy A."
