According to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports 1, Ohio State DC Greg Schiano hasn't decided whether he'll accept the Patriots' defensive coordinator position.

Multiple outlets have reported that Schiano is expected to replace Matt Patricia as New England's DC but Feldman cautions that it's not a done deal. The job is Schiano's to lose but perhaps he's having second thoughts with so much uncertainty surrounding the Patriots. If he does accept the job, it will be Schiano's first NFL gig since being let go by the Buccaneers following the 2013 campaign.
Feb 5 - 11:11 AM

NBC Sports' Gary Tanguay reports the Patriots are expected to interview Greg Schiano for their defensive coordinator vacancy after the season.

Incumbent DC Matt Patricia will be the Lions' head coach, and highly-regarded LBs coach Brian Flores may not be ready for coordinator duties. Schiano is currently Urban Meyer's defensive coordinator at Ohio State, and remains well thought of in the coaching community. He has a long history with Bill Belichick.
Feb 1 - 10:53 PM

Ex-Bucs and Rutgers coach Greg Schiano hopes to return to coaching in 2015.

Schiano is open to both pro and college jobs. According to The MMQB, Schiano has used his year off to "reinvent his coaching philosophy and undergo a frank assessment of himself." In other words, he's trying to lighten up. Schiano appears to have genuinely learned the error of some of his NFL ways, but it's unlikely he gets another bite at the big-league apple as a head man. He's best suited for the college game.

The Boston Globe passes along "a lot of buzz" at the Combine that Greg Schiano could join the Patriots' coaching staff.

Per Patriots beat reporter Ben Volin, Schiano and Bill Belichick were seen "hanging out" Thursday night in Indy. Belichick is huge Schiano supporter, using numerous draft picks on Rutgers players and even recommending Schiano as a head-coaching candidate to Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, after Schiano was fired by the Bucs. Schiano has history as a defensive backs coach and was the Miami Hurricanes' defensive coordinator before going to Rutgers.

Per SI's Peter King, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was "intrigued" by Greg Schiano as a head-coaching candidate in Cleveland and set up the Browns' interview with Schiano in Tampa Bay.

Schiano received recommendations from Urban Meyer and Bill Belichick, which Haslam apparently took very seriously. Haslam's affection for Schiano reportedly caused a "major rift in the organization," as since-fired president Joe Banner was "cold to Schiano" during their meeting in Tampa, and didn't participate in much of the interview. "Banner likely thought Schiano would be a disastrous hire, given all the negatives in recent Cleveland history," writes King. The Schiano thing was the owner's idea, and he's still around.

Darrelle Revis said "guys didn't like coming to work" for fired Bucs coach Greg Schiano.

Unsurprisingly, Schiano's rah-rah college style didn't go over well with grown men. "The atmosphere, I felt like, was real tense. ... You're going to get everything out of everybody if it's stress-free and let people be who they are," Revis said. Schiano went 11-21 in two seasons with the Bucs after leaving Rutgers. Making matters worse, Revis said other players at the Pro Bowl called his schemes a "joke." Anyone considering Schiano for a gig should click the link below.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Akron Beacon Journal, and NFL Network are all reporting Greg Schiano will not be the Browns' next head coach despite his Wednesday interview with the team.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora simultaneously reported late Wednesday that Schiano is very much alive in Cleveland, but it sounds like the Browns are trying to throw water on the fire that erupted when word leaked of Schiano's interview. Multiple reports now indicate Bills DC Mike Pettine is the favorite, with Seahawks DC Dan Quinn not a serious candidate. So signs point toward Pettine getting the job. The NFL couldn't have handled another year of Schiano anyway.

The Browns interviewed ex-Bucs coach Greg Schiano for their head-coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

Don't laugh: It's true. Reports surfaced Wednesday of a "mystery candidate" in Cleveland, and it's beleaguered ex-Tampa man Schiano, whose tenure with the Bucs was an abject disaster, from MRSA infections to rushing-the-victory-formation nonsense to an 11-21 record in two seasons. Schiano's 2013 Buccaneers underachieved spectacularly, so it makes no sense why any NFL team would target him as a head coach. Enter, the Factory of Sadness.

Bucs fired coach Greg Schiano and GM Mark Dominik.

The hard-headed Schiano lasts just two seasons in Tampa, producing an 11-21 record and no playoff berths. His reign was marred by a bungling of Darrelle Revis, a lack of progression from Josh Freeman, a MRSA breakout and bush league tactics against opponent's victory formations. Schiano likely could have stuck around to grow with Mike Glennon, but the Bucs dropped four of their final five games and the Glazer Family decided to drop the axe. Schiano, a former Joe Paterno assistant, will immediately become a favorite for the Penn State job once Bill O'Brien bolts for the NFL. Starting from scratch again, the Bucs have already been linked to a new duo of Lovie Smith and Rich McCay by ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 11:41:00 AM

Appearing on NFL GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Penn State is expected to make a "strong push" for Bucs coach Greg Schiano if Bill O'Brien bolts for the NFL.

Per Rapoport, Penn State athletic director David Joyner could even "fly down" to Tampa on Monday. For what it's worth, O'Brien has yet to officially abandon the Nittany Lions for Houston, while Rapoport's colleague Mike Silver reported Schiano has told the Bucs he wants to stay. The coaching carousel will be spinning 100 miles per hour this time tomorrow.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 10:17:00 AM

PennLive.com reports Bucs coach Greg Schiano and Titans coach Mike Munchak have made it known through "intermediaries" that they would be interested in the Penn State job were Bill O'Brien to leave for the NFL.

O'Brien is a hot name in the NFL rumor mill, but it's unknown how serious he is about potentially bolting the Nittany Lions after just two seasons. As for Schiano and Munchak, both are on the hot seat, but Munchak more so than Schiano. We should have a much better idea of all three men's futures by this time next week.
Tue, Dec 24, 2013 08:11:00 PM

Bucs sources tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport it's "no guarantee" coach Greg Schiano keeps his job through the end of the season.

The report comes on the same day a former player compared playing for Schiano to "being in Cuba." Schiano's second season is shaping up much like the third year of the man he replaced, Raheem Morris, only with a lot more off-the-field drama. Schiano's on-the-field product hasn't quite approached the ineptitude of Morris' in 2011, but it's getting close.
Thu, Oct 24, 2013 06:34:00 PM

A former Bucs player who spent 2012 in Tampa calls playing for coach Greg Schiano "worse than you can imagine," and "like being in Cuba."

Per reporter Mike Silver, several current players describe a "similarly bleak environment in which the all-powerful, unyielding Schiano spews tone-deaf platitudes." Ex-Buc and current Seahawks DE Michael Bennett was willing to go on the record with his distaste for his former coach. "I think he just wants to flex his power," Bennett said. "He has small (man's) syndrome. I still talk to guys who are there, and trust me, there's not much respect for him in that locker room." With each passing week, it becomes more and more clear that Schiano is going to need a miracle to save his job.
