Following a lengthy investigation, Rutgers has now learned its NCAA fate. The NCAA ruled Friday that the athletic department failed to monitor the football program's drug-testing program over a five-year period, former coach Kyle Flood failed to monitor his operations staff, and Flood failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance by contacting a special instructor when making arrangements for a student-athlete.

As a result of the investigation, Rutgers will receive two years probation from Sept. 22, 2017, through Sept. 21, 2019. Flood, who is now the offensive line coach for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, also received a one-year show-cause from Sept. 22, 2017, through Sept. 21, 2018.
