  Rutgers will not permit any in-person classes or events until at least mid-August due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the university has not yet ruled out opening campus for the football team and other fall sports programs to hold preseason practices. The moratorium does mean teams will not be able to return for summer workouts prior to the start of the preseason. It will also prevent programs from holding summer camps and recruiting evaluation events. "There will be no in-person classes, programs, camps, conferences or other activities at Rutgers University through at least August 14," according to a letter from senior vice president of academic affairs Barbara Lee. "Information related to fall orientations and intercollegiate preseason athletic activity will be forthcoming." Football training camp typically opens in late July or early August. - Star Ledger

  The quarterback position hasn't been one of stability in recent seasons for Rutgers, and it remains a question mark heading into the 2020 season. The cancellation of spring practice and the Scarlet-White game because of the coronavirus pandemic doesn't help to provide much clarity.So there's again going to be some intrigue in training camp, whenever it begins, as Greg Schiano and his coaching staff decide who they want to hand the reins of the offense to. Sitkowski entered the NCAA transfer portal, appeared prepared to leave Rutgers, and then a major development unfolded: Greg Schiano returned and Sitkowski removed his name from the portal.Now he'll enter training camp as a frontrunner for Rutgers' quarterback competition.

It was a turbulent few months for Sitkowski, who threw for 429 yards and one touchdown in three games last season. Sitkowski requested to voluntarily redshirt after Nunzio Campanile took over upon Chris Ash's firing, a request that Campanile honored. Now Sitkowski is back at Rutgers, a 6-foot-5, strong-armed quarterback who could see another chance. New offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Sean Gleeson is known for his development of QBs and ran a pro-style offense in previous stops, so this could be a much-needed opportunity and a fresh start for Sitkowski. - Asbury Park Press

  Greg Schiano has added another former Rutgers assistant coach to his Scarlet Knights staff. Schiano announced Tuesday that Joe Susan will serve as special assistant to the head coach. The veteran mentor has more than 40 years of experience at the collegiate level, including nine recently as head coach at Bucknell and nine on Schiano's previous staff. Susan most recently served as special assistant to the director of athletics at Bucknell. He had resigned as head football coach following the 2018 season. Susan was on Schiano's original staff in 2001, serving two seasons as offensive line coach. He moved to tight ends in 2003 and added the title of recruiting coordinator in 2004. Susan has worked at Davidson, Princeton, Memphis, Delaware and Gettysburg in a coaching career that started in 1977. - AP College Football

  Rutgers has hired Sean Gleeson as its offensive coordinator, the latest New Jersey native or former Scarlet Knights' assistant to join the staff. Coach Greg Schiano announced the hiring Saturday. Gleeson spent last season as the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State. He worked the previous six seasons at Princeton. Former Rutgers receiver Tiquan Underwood was named the wide receivers coach on Friday. Earlier, Schiano hired Jim Panagos for a second stint as defensive line coach and made Camden native Fran Brown his secondary coach. "Sean is one of the brightest young offensive minds in college football and we are happy to welcome him and his family to Rutgers," said Schiano, who was hired in December for a second tour with the Scarlet Knights. "He has worked his way up the ranks with a history of developing quarterbacks and highly productive offensive schemes."

Gleeson, of Glen Ridge, New Jersey, guided one of the most explosive offenses in the Football Championship Subdivision in his lone season with Oklahoma State. Three Oklahoma State offensive players earned All-Big 12 honors, including Big 12 Offensive Player Chuba Hubbard, who led the nation with 2,093 yards rushing and an an average of 179.54 all-purpose yards. In Gleeson's time at Princeton, the Tigers won three Ivy League championships and averaged 36.9 points. He helped the Tigers to an undefeated 2018 season. - AP College Football

  After an on-again, off-again courtship, Greg Schiano is back as Rutgers football coach. Of course, it didn't go off without a Rutgers-like hitch. There was a glitch with microphones at a public hearing before the deal became official. The university's Board of Governors on Tuesday approved an eight-year, $32 million contract to bring back the former Scarlet Knights coach to lead the downtrodden program that has lost 21 straight Big Ten Conference games and won seven others over the last three seasons. The 53-year-old Schiano will be introduced at a news conference on Wednesday.

The agreement, which was signed by Schiano and athletic director Pat Hobbs on Saturday and announced on Sunday, will give the coach a $4 million annual salary and $7.7 million annually to hire a staff, with the amount increasing 3% annually. The incentive-laden contract runs through February 2028. The board's vote on telephone conference call took less than 10-to-15 seconds. The 20 minutes before the vote were mostly procedure measures and a chance for some to vent about problems at the university not related to football. Five people addressed the board on issues ranging from a new contract for more than 1,100 physicians associated with the university, spending money on an athletic department that annually loses money and a failure of the board to release terms of Schiano's deal before approving it. - AP College Football

  Greg Schiano and Rutgers have agreed to a deal that will bring the former Scarlet Knights coach back to lead the program, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity early Sunday morning because contract details were still being finalized. Yahoo! Sports first reported Schiano and Rutgers had agreed in principle to a deal. The move comes a week after both sides walked away from negotiations and declared the possibility of a reunion dead. Rutgers had offered Schiano an eight-year contract worth $32 million, but the two sides could not agree on other financial commitments by the school toward improved facilities and infrastructure. - AP College Football

  After what interim coach Nunzio Campanile referred to as another training camp these last four weeks while he installed a new offense following the ouster of coach Chris Ash, Rutgers' offense was finally clicking. Rutgers quarterback Johnny Langan had a career day, completing 15 of 21 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns, and adding 21 rushes for 118 yards and a touchdown to lead Rutgers past Liberty 44-34 on Saturday. "It is what I imagined - I thought it would come a little quicker than that." Campanile said of his offense with a wry smile. "In all honesty I think I learned pretty quickly there are some matchups and stuff that weren't exactly easy for us, and some of the stuff we dealt with the first week probably set us back a little. This is what I would envision us being, and hopefully it is something that we can build off."

Isaih Pacheco ran for 107 yards and a score for the Scarlet Knights (2-6). It was the fourth time in his career he topped 100 yards. Langan had a 51-yard pitch-and-catch to Isaiah Washington for Washington's first career touchdown and Rutgers' first lead of the game at 28-21 with 12 minutes left in the third quarter. It was also Rutgers' first lead since they were leading Boston College 10-7 in an eventual 30-16 loss five games ago. On the ensuing possession, a false start by right tackle Sam Isaacson on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line forced Liberty to kick the field goal to make it 28-24 with 6:53 left in the third quarter. However, with Rutgers' offense humming for the first time since the season-opening win against UMass, Liberty's defense was unable to make the stops needed. - Rutgers/AP College Football

  Johnny Langan is out - for now. The Rutgers transfer quarterback has been ruled ineligible to play this season by the NCAA, head coach Chris Ash said Wednesday as the Scarlet Knights reported to training camp. But Langan is currently appealing the decision, Ash said. There is no timeframe on when a decision on the appeal may be made. Langan is a former Bergen Catholic star who transferred in this past winter after redshirting at Boston College. He was projected to be the No. 3 quarterback on the Scarlet Knights' depth chart behind incumbent starter Artur Sitkowski and graduate transfer addition McLane Carter. If Langan's appeal is denied, true freshman Cole Snyder will likely be the third quarterback. - Star Ledger

  Artur Sitkowski may not be Rutgers' starting quarterback this season. But if the sophomore does hold onto his job and improves off last year's ugly freshman campaign, at least one rival coach believes he can be a difference-maker for the Scarlet Knights. "[Sitkowski] threw a lot of picks, but he has a lot of raw arm talent," an anonymous opposing coach told Athlon Sports in its season preview magazine. "You can live with the mistakes now, because if it clicks for him, he can change everything for them. They have to improve at that position, because there are athletes on the outside. They just can't get the ball to them."

Sitkowski's physical gifts are clear. But his accuracy and decision-making was abysmal last year as he threw four touchdowns and 18 interceptions, the most in the country, in 11 starts as Rutgers stumbled to a 1-11 finish. The Old Bridge native exited spring practice as the Scarlet Knights' No. 1 quarterback, but a training camp battle is likely on the horizon with the addition of graduate transfer McLane Carter from Texas Tech. - Star Ledger
