Reports came out early on Thursday that Rutgers Scarlet Knights coach Greg Schiano was nearing a deal to become the new head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Schiano was kept hush-hush as a candidate until late in the proceedings and the reports that he is on the verge of signing with the Bucs was a surprise to many. But now it seems that more than one team has pursued Schiano this offseason.
According to Evan Silva of Rotoworld, ESPN's Adam Schefter stated that Schiano has been on many NFL teams' lists of candidates and that Schiano spoke with the St. Louis Rams at one point.
With the current amount of head coaching vacancies in the NFL, it should come as no surprise that front offices will be targeting any and all top college football coaches.
