I actually LOVE it.  Home Run hire! He and Urban have an existing relationship.

Wait... what the??? Can someone help me understand the relationship b/w Urban and Schiano? On the surface, my first thought is "that guy's crazy."

Any word if he's bringing MRSA with him?

Whoa. Big news, if true.

Fascinating to think that we basically traded Rutgers Ash for Schiano...

I was thinking the same thing, except Tampa Bay got a player to be named later in the deal.

I have absolutely no idea what to think of this. It's a big name but not necessarily for good reason.

I like it. Schiano recruited FL well while at Rutgers. Also has the NFL pedigree that will appeal to recruits.

Only thing I don't like is that it is likely a 2 year move--so we'll be doing this all over again in a couple years.

You're going to have to get use to it. Urban has, IIRC, said he prefers to hire guys that have higher expectations than just an assistant's role. Not the case all the time, but generally speaking.

What if you don't hear YOLO anymore because everyone who use to say it died?

HS

I know, I know. Plus, if that's the case, that means he's done a pretty good job here. If that's our biggest problem, I'll take it.

See but because that, Urban has to depend on Fickell, Johnson, Coombs, and that under staff a lot more than we all probably realize which is good for the program too

This is a pretty amazing hire if it ends up being true.  Should help the NJ recruiting too.

My guess is he is tired of losing. Sure he could get a HC gig at an Iowa State, or come work with Urbz and gain some traction to a power 5 job. Sounds much more appealing to me!

Not sure I like it; the news of his style and the culture that he created at the end of his tenure at Tampa Bay is not good.

Could you elaborate on that? Not disagreeing, just hadn't heard about the culture thing. Although I was aware things didn't go all that well there.

This SI article on Greg Schiano alludes to the issues. He's a good coach and the article already seems to say that he is learning from his mistakes. Hopefully he has.  

At the end of Schiano’s first season in Tampa Bay, he gave all the players surveys. They could fill them out anonymously or attach their name to them. The blunt feedback prompted Schiano to change radically from his first season to the next. Schiano arrived in Tampa under direction from ownership to instill discipline in a franchise that had become too loose under Raheem Morris. In his quest to do that, Schiano admits he didn’t make some of the necessary adjustments needed when coaching professional athletes as opposed to college kids.

In his first year, Schiano began every meeting with a support staff member taking attendance of every player by calling out his number. One of the players wrote on his survey: “I felt like I was going from cell block to cell block.” Another player chafed at the mandatory meals—a college staple—saying he’d rather have breakfast with his family. So before his second season, Schiano ditched the roll call and made pregame meal the only mandatory one.

But Schiano doesn’t feel that the reality of the 2013 season outlasted the reputation from 2012. “You know the saying, You get the reputation for being an early riser, you can sleep till noon,” he says. “Well, it goes the other way too. If you get a reputation for being a jerk, no matter how well you treat the players…”

HS

I think that his intensity isn't a great fit for the NFL.  Clearly it worked at Rutgers because he made them relevant and they wouldn't even be a B1G school without him.

Great hire, not only is he a great defensive coach as he coached Miami's 99-2000 defenses and DB coach for the Bears, but he can be a guy Urban bounces ideas around with from his head coaching days. Never hurts to have experience in the room.

Wait, so the only coach that made Rutgers a relevant football program is now replacing the assistant coach that Rutgers hired as their new head coach?  My brain hurts, but I like it.

Schiano was clearly an awful NFL head coach. But he also coached great D's at Miami and took Rutgers from pathetic to respectable. I wouldn't want Schiano as our head coach but under Urban I think he has the ability to keep our defense at the same level it is today. Paired with Fickell, the Silver Bullets will reign.

I hate people keep saying, well he was a bad HC for Tampa and short comings as a HC, wont be good for tOSU...

First off, the dude was one hell of a college coach to do the things he did with Rutgers. Second, there have been guys who were horrible HCs but have been amazing assistants. If Urbz thought he would be an issue on his staff he wouldnt of hired him.

Do you guys know his whole history? He was a DB coach for Penn St from 91-95, Defensive coach for the bears from 96-98, From 99 to 00 he was the DC for the U. In 99 miami had the 12th best defense and 00 they had the 7th best defense, then he left to be the HC for Rutgers until he went to Tampa Bay.

I think this was a great hire, you have a guy who has HC experience, DC experience, DB coach experience. 

The only bad thing is he might be here for 1-2 seasons but you look at Ash he was only here for 2 seasons too. Urb knows if he hires great assistants, they are going to turn into HC candidates

Agree! I was just on MgoBlog and they are talking just about his NFL tenure. Last time I checked Saban was a bad coach at the NFL and some consider him the best coach in college football. This hire is huge for me because he's a defensive mind, NFL experience, and knows the Florida/New Jersey areas for recruiting.

Schiano would freak out if the caterer brought rigatoni instead of farfalle. Hopefully urbs can get him to chill out about the pasta.

Hard to argue with this move.  Can't accuse Urban of not getting the best available considering everyone expected this guy to be a head coach somewhere this year.  Maybe a "lesson learned" from last off season and replacing Herman.  I think the 2016 Bucks are gonna be really fun to watch...and good.
