It had been reported last week that Tampa Bay and Oregon head coach Chip Kelly were very close to a deal to make him the franchise’s next coach. That deal fell through at the last moment, however, when a change of heart led Kelly back to Oregon.
Schiano, 45, has served as the head coach of Rutgers since 2001. In that time he has led the Scarlet Knights to a 68-67 overall record, and has won in five out of six Bowl Game appearances.
