He's not even known well enough for Subby to spell his name right!

Seriously though, he is a good coach. Rutgers was probably the biggest joke of a program in all of the BCS conferences when Schiano took over, but now they're respectable. Rutgers fans really seem to like him. And yeah, you'd think an NFL team could go bigger, but it's the Bucs.

I believe they're jumping on the 49ers/Jim Harbaugh bandwagon and are under the impression that "Hey, Schiano did almost the same thing Harbaugh did with Stanford, PLUS the fact he didn't have an Andrew Luck to help. Playoffs this year for sure!"

He must be really loyal, because after their 11-2 season in '06, he could've gone anywhere. Even if he's an utter dullard who got lucky with some nice recruits surrounded by outstanding coordinators and assistant coaches, taking Rutgers of all god-damned teams to that record is...unfathomable. Petrino would've bailed before they even lost their first game that season.

Ignoring the fact that Harbaugh had 10+ years experience as an NFL quarterback. But hey, I'm sure this will work out great for them. NFL players love it when a lifetime college, fifth-choice coaching candidate comes in and starts telling them what to do.

I was in college at the time and had a suitemate from East Brunswick who loved Rutgers sports. Late that year they played Louisville, who was ranked #3 at the time, and won. I was at a bar with him that was packed with Rutgers fans, and the mood could best be described as euphoric disbelief.

Keep in mind they had only made one bowl game in their whole history before Schiano. And that history is tied with Princeton for the longest freaking history in college football. They've been to several bowls with him. No big bowls but again, it's Rutgers.

Personally I hope he says no and they have to hire some no name.

protectyourlimbs: Yeah, who are these Bucs you speak of?


"The Bucs" (or Buccos, as the locals refer to them) is the nickname for the Pittsburgh Pirates. One of the most fantastic groupings of inept and loveable losers ever gathered. They perform stunts such as doing a reality show in India to find the cricket players to give minor league contracts, trading away anyone that shows they are at least an average player for nothing, and signing over the hill cast-offs from other teams to exhorbanant contracts to make the salary floor rather than pay their young talent.

Hiring a College Football coach to manage an MLB team is just another in a long line of publicity stunts their comically ineefective front office has pulled.

Rutgers - 1869 Co-National Champions.

Co- only because of the newfangled "free kick" rule.

He coached in the NFL for 3 years, and players don't care if what choice coach you are as long as you know what you are doing. There are coaches that were "college coaches" that went on to win Superbowls.

Subby must not watch college football. I live Pac-12 country and even I know this guy.

Steve Spurrier is not one of those coaches

Good, the state could hire 46 full time teachers on his salary alone.

FreakinB: Seriously though, he is a good coach.


LOL.

Rutgers has ascended from horrendous to mediocre thanks to the departure of Miami, Virginia Tech, Boston College, slumps by Syracuse and Pittsburgh, the most cowardly out-of-conference scheduling in the country (last year: North Carolina, NC Central, Ohio University, Army, Navy), and the near-bankrupting of the university.

KJUW89: Subby must not watch college football. I live Pac-12 country and even I know this guy.


That's because Pac-12 fans tend to be the most knowledgeable in the country about other conferences, thanks to the wall-to-wall coverage of every conference but our own and the fact that every conference seems to have national broadcasting priority over us.

Hey!

That's 10-4, MAC Runner-Up, Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Winning Ohio University to you!

I'm sure if Shady had known that ahead of time, he would have scheduled Akron instead.

Oh, and though I have heard of him, I don't think he's so much as an adequate hire.

As a Pirates fan, I see it as more factual than sarcastic. If I was a fan of any other team, I'd think it was funny though.

Big difference between Jim Harbaugh and Schiano is Harbaugh actually played in the NFL and was pretty good. He understands the difference between the NCAA and the NFL. Schiano played for Bucknell and was an assitant in the NFL for 2 whole years. I know.... but John Harbaugh..... but, he grew up with a coach for a father and worked up from being an assistant for many years, and pretty much spent his entire life surrounded by pretty knowledable people in the sport.

/They're farked.
 
2012-01-26 06:21:07 PM  
I have already gone through the 5 stages of grief. At least he didn't bolt after LOI day leaving all those kids twisting in the wind.

/We're farked
 
2012-01-26 07:01:06 PM  
Did he ever win the Big East? You know the Big east w/o Miami or VT.

iron_city_ap: I know.... but John Harbaugh..... but, he grew up with a coach for a father and worked up from being an assistant for many years, and pretty much spent his entire life surrounded by pretty knowledable people in the sport.


And actually beat top-tier teams while coaching at Stanford, something Schiano didn't do.
 
2012-01-26 07:42:37 PM  
aww.. c'mon.. someone has to hire Chilly!
with the Raiders slot filled, it's pretty much down to the Bucs and Colts

Devo: Did he ever win the Big East? You know the Big east w/o Miami or VT.


No. He never finished higher than third. Even that year when everyone blew their wads over Jersey State, they still only finished in third and played in the Texas Bowl.
 
2012-01-26 09:06:21 PM  
Nope, still more worried about Newton getting a defense someday. Sorry, woodchopper.
 
2012-01-26 09:35:33 PM  
Shrugs. Can't be worse than: Morris, Bennett, Perkins, McKay, Williamson, or Wyche.

Still have to give him his props, at least for once, Rutgers was relevant.

I was a student during the Schiano/Ray Rice era, and I will be sad to see him go but happy he is moving up. When I was a senior we were camping out in the stadium parking lot in the cold waiting to get Louisville tickets, and Greg Schiano showed up at 3am with 50 pizzas for everyone who was waiting.

He was 28-27 in the Big Least and made 2.3 million. Rutgers has been an average program-Temple has been better than them the last few years. He was hired to keep NJ kids from going to other schools and has failed in that lately. He was good in bowls, but he as usually playing other midlevel crappy teams. He's only being hired because he worked for Belichek and everyone else is turning TB down. The Colts got a much better hire the same day.
 
2012-01-27 07:27:46 PM  
He made the top 100 almost every year! I wonder who will coach the Bucs next?
