About this speaker
A veteran offensive line coach and former head coach at Rutgers, Kyle Flood was named offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Texas on January 22, 2021. As the offensive coordinator for UT in 2021, Flood guided one of the top units in the nation. Texas ranked 18th in the nation in scoring offense (35.2), fourth in red zone offense (0.936) 26th in rushing offense (199.0 ypg) and 31st in 3rd down conversion percentage (0.438), while ranking second in the Big 12 in scoring offense and rushing offense.
Flood spent the last two seasons coaching the offensive line at Alabama alongside Steve Sarkisian, guiding the group to earn the 2020 Joe Moore Award as the nation’s top unit. The line paved the way one of the top offenses in Alabama history that propelled the Crimson Tide to the National Championship. In the past two seasons, Alabama put together 24 straight games in which the offense scored 35 or more points, the longest streak in major college football history. The Longhorns averaged 6.35 yard per play, the eighth-best mark in program history, and averaged 5.23 yards per rushing attempt, the ninth-best average in UT history. Against Texas Tech, the Longhorns scored 70 points, tied for the ninth-hightest total in program history, while also gaining 639 yards, the tied for UT's 12th-best mark. In 2020, Alabama's offense ranked second in the nation in scoring and led all Power 5 schools with 48.5 points per game, which set a school record and included five 50-point games against Southeastern Conference competition. The Crimson Tide became the first team in league history to record five such games in a single season in conference play. The Tide followed that by posting 52 points against Florida in the 2020 SEC Championship to earn the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff. They later matched that total in the National Championship Game against Ohio State.
Alabama led the nation in third-down conversion percentage (58.9), team passing efficiency (198.99) and completion percentage (76.2), and ranked fourth in the nation in total offense at 541.6 yards per game to break the school record
