Greg Schiano Rebuilding Bucs Like He Did Rutgers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano is better known for his time coaching the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. While there he was able to lead Rutgers to their first national ranking since 1976 by earning an 11-2 record in 2006. He also led Rutgers to six bowl appearances in the last seven years he was head coach.

When he was hired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it was hoped that he could do the same kind of rebuilding job. After winning in week one over the Carolina Panthers 16-10, it appears that the Buccaneers are on track. Safety Ronde Barber says that his attention to detail has influenced the whole organization:

Whatever he's doing, it's working. He's very specific and very detail-oriented. You can call it whatever you want to, but we are a very attention-to-detail organization all the way down to the players. It's working for us,

Schiano brought 10 assistants with him from Rutgers and hopes to continue the early success he's had with the Buccaneers on Sunday against the New York Giants.
