Rutgers coach Kyle Flood will hire Ben McDaniels as wide receivers coach, completing his full-time coaching staff, sources told McDaniels spent 2013 as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is a former Denver Broncos quarterbacks coach.

The full-time Rutgers football staff is whole again after nine weeks. Head coach Kyle Flood made his first splash in late January with the hire of offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen.

Flood did it again Monday afternoon with the decision to add Ben McDaniels as his wide receivers coach, sources told McDaniels is the brother of New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and has three years of experience as an NFL assistant.

McDaniels spent last season under Greg Schiano with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is the former quarterbacks coach with the Denver Broncos. McDaniels has a quarterback background dating back to his time as a player at Kent State. He will coach receivers for Rutgers with Friedgen taking the reins at quarterback.

McDaniels completes the Rutgers full-time staff moving into spring practice. Flood hired Friedgen, defensive coordinator Joe Rossi and special teams coordinator Bob Fraser at the end of January. Rutgers will need to add one graduate assistant spot to replace Darnell Stapleton, who took a full-time job at Pace University.
