Rutgers’ Schiano close to first NFL coaching position

Rutgers coach Greg Schiano is reportedly clsoe to striking a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

ESPN reports that Schiano, 45, and Buccaneers officials met Wednesday for the second time and then worked into the morning writing a contract that is expected to be finalized. This would be Schiano’s first NFL coaching job.

The Buccaneers fired former coach Raheem Morris earlier this month after the team went 4-12.

Schiano has a 49-28 record with Rutgers. His current contract with Rutgers runs through 2016 and pays him $2.35 million a year.
