Former Tampa Bay Bucs head coach and current Ohio State defensive coordinator is reportedly going to take that position with the New England Patriots. That’s according to a report from Football Scoop that says he will take over for Matt Patricia who is expected to become the Detroit Lions new head coach.
Schiano was of course the head coach of the Bucs in 2011 and 2012 before being fired and moving on to Ohio State in 2016 to work under Urban Meyer. He was previously at Rutgers as a head coach where he made them a winning and even competitive program, the likes of which they haven’t seen since.
His other stops as a coach include Penn State, the Chicago Bears and the Miami Hurricanes. He has always coached defense and his specialty is the secondary as he coached defensive backs at PSU and has been coaching safeties at Ohio State the last two seasons.
