TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in talks with Rutgers' Greg Schiano to become the team's next coach.
Bucs general manager Mark Dominik confirmed to The Associated Press Thursday that the club is discussing the job with Schiano and that "many" of the other candidates have been told they are no longer under consideration.
ESPN first reported the Bucs and Schiano are close to an agreement.
The 45-year-old Schiano has been with the Scarlet Knights for 11 seasons, taking them from college football laughingstock to a program that has had winning records in six of the last seven years. He was an assistant coach in the NFL with Chicago from 1996-98.
The Bucs fired Raheem Morris this month after a 4-12 finish that included 10 straight losses to end the season.
