Greg Schiano was fired as coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following a season in which the team lost its first eight games and cut quarterback Josh Freeman four years after making him a first-round draft pick.
Rutgers University promoted assistant Kyle Flood to replace Greg Schiano as football coach after failing to lure former assistant Mario Cristobal from Florida International University, the Newark Star-Ledger said, citing two unidentified people familiar with the situation.
Josh Freeman was replaced by rookie Mike Glennon as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting quarterback after completing a National Football League-low 45.7 percent of his passes during the team’s 0-3 start.
Kyle Flood had the interim tag removed from his title as head football coach at Rutgers University, less than a week after Greg Schiano left the job for the National Football League’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Butch Davis was hired as a special assistant to Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano less than a year after being fired as football coach at the University of North Carolina during an investigation into rules violations.
Rutgers University forgave $100,000 of the football coach’s interest-free home loan last year. The women’s basketball coach got monthly golf and car allowances. Both collected bonuses without winning a championship.
