Greg Schiano Still Not Interested In Penn State Job, According To Report

While Greg Schiano's name just doesn't seem to go away in connection with Penn State's coaching job, the Rutgers coach reportedly is still not interested. Schiano was once a Penn State assistant.

The desire to link Schiano to Penn State does make sense. In addition to being a former assistant, having spent six years there mostly as a defensive backs coach, some reports surfaced that a Penn State private jet had been visiting Schiano's neighborhood around Christmas. It would also make sense that Penn State would be looking to make a bit of a splash with the man they choose to replace the winningest coach in NCAA history, something Schiano's hiring would accomplish.

All that said, maybe this is all just smoke and no fire. You can't really blame guys like Schiano for wanting to steer clear of the situation.
