Greg Schiano's Contract With Bucs Is Five Years, According To Report

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were connected to a number of candidates since firing Raheem Morris but they've decided on Greg Schiano for their head coaching position. The Bucs job is the last of the open head coaching jobs in the NFL.

Schiano's deal with the Bucs will be for five years, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The two sides spoke early on in the process and the Glazer family, who owns the Bucs, did a lot of research on Schiano as a potential NFL candidate talking to people around the league, including Bill Belichick, who spoke highly of Schiano.

Schiano is coming from the college ranks, which might be a good thing considering the Bucs are one of the youngest teams in the league. He takes over a team with a lot of unrealized talent and a quarterback situation that needs to continue to improve.
