Greg Schiano is back in football, as he’s expected to accept the Ohio State Buckeyes Associate Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator job. He’s been out of organized football since being fired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two-years ago.

He’ll replace Chris Ash, who was the Buckeyes defensive coordinator. Ash was named Rutgers Scarlet Knights head coach last Saturday.

He was working with ESPN as an NFL Analyst this season. This will be his first college or professional job since being fired by the Bucs after the 2013 season.

With the Bucs, he had a woeful record of 11-21 for a 34.4 win percentage. His teams finished 4th in the NFC South each time.

He hasn’t been a defensive coordinator since he was with the Miami Hurricanes in 1999 and 2000. In 1999, the Hurricanes finished with a 9-4 record, and the defensive unit allowed 16.9 points per game, which was 12th in the nation.

The 2000 team went 11-1 and had the 7th-best defense as they allowed 15.8 points per game. They had NFL players Ed Reed, Philip Buchanan, Dan Morgan and Mike Rumph on its roster.

That was obviously before he went to become the Scarlet Knights head coach from 2001 through 2011.

This will be his second defensive coordinator job on his resume. As a college head coach, his teams went 68-67, including winning four of his five bowl games.

His teams were 28-48 within the Big East Conference, but after the 2006 season, his teams went 49-28. His lone below .500 record was in 2010 when Rutgers went 4-8 and missed out on postseason play.
