The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finalized a 5-year deal with Rutgers’ coach Greg Schiano to become the teams next head coach.
Former Packers coach Mike Sherman was scheduled to meet for a second time with the Buccaneers yesterday but is out of the running.
The 45-year-old Schiano has been an assistant coach in the NFL with the Chicago Bears from 1996-98. He’s coached the Scarlet Knights for 11 years, leading the program to winning seasons in 6 of the last 7 seasons.
The Bucs fired Raheem Morris after a 4-12 record that included 10-straight losses.
There’s a chance that Sherman could still become the offensive coordinator in Miami under new Dolphins coach Joe Philbin.
