National Football League analyst sounds off on Tennessee's reported hire of Greg Schiano

Greg Schiano spent 11 seasons as head coach at Rutgers and two with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Greg Schiano spent 11 seasons as head coach at Rutgers and two with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says Tennessee has contacted Buckeyes defensive coordinator Greg Schiano about its head coaching vacancy.

Tennessee House of Representatives member Eddie Smith has also spoken out against Schiano, referring to the former Penn State defensive backs coach's alleged involvement in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. However, Mullen appears to be finalizing a deal with Florida, and it looks like Gruden and Campbell declined Tennessee's overtures.

Fans weren't the only ones confused by the hire, as even the NFL's Mike Freeman called the reported hire "one of the worst coaching moves of the past 10 years, in any sport, on any level".

Prior to joining the Bucs, Schiano was Rutgers' head coach, leading the Scarlet Knights to their best sustained run of success in the program's recent history.

Along with working in the National Football League for two seasons, Schiano has become a close confidant of Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and Schiano spent considerable time with him during his two years out of coaching. Ohio State ranked No. 3 in scoring defense last season with Schiano as co-coordinator and is No. 8 in total defense this year.

Was Schiano being considered throughout the coaching search?
