(Sports Network) - Kyle Flood has reportedly agreed to become the permanent head football coach at Rutgers.

Flood agreed to the job hours after Florida International's Mario Cristobal turned Rutgers down, The New York Times reported Monday night.

The paper reported that Flood's acceptance is pending the completion of a contract. The school was expected to announce the move on Tuesday afternoon.

Flood was named interim head coach last Thursday after Greg Schiano resigned to coach the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Flood has spent seven seasons on the Rutgers staff, including four as assistant head coach.

Cristobal declined the Rutgers job partly because it was offered too close to national signing day on Wednesday, according to the Times.
