Rutgers Scarlet Knights Roster 2019 Knights Roster

Head Coach: Chris Ash        2017 Salary: $2,100,000        Offensive Coordinator: John McNutlty       Defensive Coordinator: Jay Neimann/Noah Joseph         

Stadium: High Point Solutions Stadium       Surface: Turf        City: Piscataway        State: New Jersey

Piscataway has seemingly been a football wasteland for the past several seasons. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have not reached a bowl game since 2014, and it has not even been close. Rutgers is simply overmatched in its conference and needs something big to turn it all around. That is most likely not coming this season. Rutgers ranked last in the country in total offense last year. The team is simply starting from too big of a deficit to make a drastic leap forward this season. Help is on the way for Rutgers in the form of four-star recruit Art Sitkowski. Rutgers does not normally land recruits this heralded under center. If Sitkowski lands the starting job, he will likely need a year to acclimate, making a dramatic improvement from the offensive morass of last season unlikely. The Scarlet Knights will be better served as a running team since there is some returning talent in the offensive backfield and line.

The continuing lack of a credible offense will place undue pressure on the defense to carry the team. This may likely be difficult as it Rutgers will lose in time of possession, keeping its defense on the field for long stretches. Multiple players who tallied over 100 tackles last season return again this year. The offense is too uncertain and the schedule is too brutal for Rutgers to hope for a bowl game this year. Rutgers is still the doormat of its conference and has little hope of winning the conference games necessary to make the postseason.
