Wyckoff native and Rutgers Coach Greg Schiano has accepted a 5 year deal to move to the NFL and coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The now former Scarlet Knight coach had an impressive 11 year run at Rutgers starting in 2001. The first few years were a rebuilding time but from 2005 until this past season he had only one losing year, 2010.
Confession time. I do like the Giants but the Buccaneers are my favorite football team. What a rough season we just had. Change is good, right? According to the official Tampa Bay Buccaneers web site “For the first time since the arrival of inaugural Head Coach John McKay, the Buccaneers will give a star in the college coaching ranks his first opportunity to lead an NFL team.” Unfortunately the inaugural season for the Bucs lead to an infamous 0-14 season. College coaches sometimes have a hard time in the NFL. It is a different animal than professional football. I have read a few sports sites and many do not think Greg will be a good fit for Tampa. I certainly hope he is and we wish him great success. Go Bucs!
