Bucs Hire Schiano
Buccaneers hire Greg Schiano to take over as coach - NFL -

The Buccaneers are counting on Greg Schiano to lead them back to respectability and transform Tampa Bay into consistent winners - much in the same way he made Rutgers matter again.
The 45-year-old former Scarlet Knights coach was hired Thursday, more than three weeks after the Bucs fired Raheem Morris following a 4-12 finish.
The team scheduled a press conference for Friday to introduce Schiano, who inherits a team that allowed the most points in the NFL this season.
"Coach Schiano is a bright, meticulous teacher who knows how to get the most out of his players," general manager Mark Dominik said. "He built and ran a pro-style program at Rutgers, and he's a defensive-minded coach whose teams have always been characterized by toughness and a physical style of play."
Schiano was at Rutgers for 11 seasons, taking them from college football laughingstocks to a program that has had winning records in six of the last seven years. He was an assistant coach in the NFL with Chicago from 1996-98.
The Scarlet Knights appointed offensive line coach Kyle Flood as interim head coach while the school searches for Schiano's replacement.

I actually think this makes a bit of sense. The team is the youngest (or at least one of the youngest) in the league. A former college guy might be best at relating to them and helping them develop...

Wow if they are. Next year could be a real mess down in Tampa.
