NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) – Rutgers has suspended football coach Kyle Flood for three games after he contacted a faculty member over a player’s status.
    
Rutgers President Robert Barchi announced the punishment Wednesday, a day after he said he received an internal investigative report.
    
Flood was also fined $50,000.
    
The report found that Flood emailed and met in person with a faculty member even though he knew or should have known of the university’s policies prohibiting coach-initiated contact with faculty members regarding students’ academic standing.
    
The report also found that Flood provided grammatical and minor editorial suggestions for a player’s paper to complete a course.
