Greg Schiano's son suspended for cursing at ref

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Greg Schiano's son might be a chip off the old block. He refused to back down from a high school referee, and was ejected and suspended for the rest of the season for using profanity.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano has a reputation of being somewhat of a bully, and that personality trait may transcended to his son, a high school linebacker at Tampa's Berkeley Prep who has reportedly been suspended for swearing at referee.

Whatever the young Schiano said to the official, one would think it'd have to be really bad for him to be suspended for the season. Profanity isn't just an NFL, or NCAA football thing. High school kids cuss up and down the sidelines and on the field, probably just as much as the higher levels of football.

And with this young man growing up under Schiano, he was bound to pick up some dirty words from somewhere.

The young Schiano using profanity toward the ref is considered a "Level 2" unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and carries a six-week suspension from the FHSAA, which extends through Nov. 9, the date of his team's last game. The school has appealed the suspension.
