**Rutgers head football coach Greg Schiano announced that Frank Edgerly has joined the football staff as the Director of Recruiting Operations. Edgerly was a member of the Scarlet Knight football team as a quarterback in 1992 and 1993 and started his coaching career as a student assistant coach at Rutgers in 1994.
A 1994 graduate of Rutgers, Edgerly returns to RU after a nine-year tenure as head coach at Red Bank Catholic High School.
During his nine years as head coach at Red Bank Catholic from 1999-2007, Edgerly guided the Caseys to a share of two division titles and six state playoff appearances.
His teams went 48-42 in nine seasons and last fall won a share of the Shore Conference Liberty Division championship. It was the second division title for the Caseys since 1989, when Edgerly was the starting quarterback for RBC as a senior before moving on to play quarterback at Rutgers.
**Rutgers is ranked No. 33 in Sports Illustrated’s preseason college rankings. Cincinnati (27), South Florida (21), Pittsburgh (19) and West Virginia (14) are ranked ahead of Rutgers. Fresno State, RU’s opening day opponent, is ranked No. 28 by SI.com.
