Buccaneers Coaching Search: Greg Schiano Accepts Tampa Bay Job, According To Report

Greg Schiano is close to becoming the next coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, replacing the fired Raheem Morris, reports Brett McMurphy of CBSSports.com. Citing sources, McMurphy says the Rutgers Scarlet Knights coach "has accepted" Tampa Bay's coaching offer.

In 11 seasons with Rutgers, Schiano has posted a 68-67 record, with a 5-1 mark in bowl games. The program won just three games combined in his first two seasons there, but has grown to respectability under his watch.

Schiano, 45, has previously worked in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, spending two years as a defensive assistant and another as a defensive backfield coach.

If hired, Schiano would take over a Tampa Bay team in disarray after a disappointing 2011 season in which it lost its final 10 games.

We'll update this StoryStream once more news on Schiano's potential hiring becomes available.
