Rutgers failed to come to an agreement to bring former head coach Greg Schiano back to the program. With Rutgers' Board of Governors tasked to look elsewhere for a full-time replacement for Chris Ash, who was fired September, the university is facing the fallout from current and former members of the Scarlet Knights.
Quarterback Artur Sitkowski and wide receiver Daevon Robinson entered the NCAA's Transfer Portal, according to multiple reports. The pair's decision to part ways comes in wake of College Football insider Brett McMurphy's report that Schiano was no longer a candidate to become the team's next head coach.
There's little indication that Sitkowski's decision to transfer is associated with Rutgers' decision not to hire Schiano. Offensive standout Raheem Blackshear also used his redshirt in 2019 and could potentially enter the transfer portal as well.
Rutgers has various options to lead the Scarlet Knights in 2020.
NJ.com reported Sunday that Michigan linebackers coach Anthony Campanile and Rams offensive assistant Jedd Fisch have emerged as top candidates for the Rutgers job. Campanile's brother, Nunzio, had served as the team's interim head coach following Ash's firing earlier in the season.
