Progress has been achieved in many areas, but, unfortunately, that progress has not been realized in the field of play. "As such, it is in the best interest of the program to make a change". The only offensive coordinator to coach for more than one season at Rutgers since he did it during his first stint in Piscataway from 2007-2008, McNulty has another year left on a three-year deal that pays him $625,000 this season.
Ash was 8-32 in three-plus seasons at the school, never winning more than four games in a season. However, the Scarlet Knights stumbled to 1-11 a year ago and began 1-3 this season. Rutgers (1-3, 0-2 Big Ten) was embarrassed 52-0 by MI on Saturday. The NJ native served as head football coach at Rutgers from 2001 to 2011.

According to NJ.com, former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano is expected to be a top candidate to return to the program after Ash was sacked Sunday, a day after the Scarlet Knights were trounced by MI, 52-0. That total includes the remainder of his $2.3 million salary this year and the $7.5 million he's owed through the 2022 season.
Update: Rutgers has officially announced the move.
