Greg Schiano addresses rumors linking him to USC opening
The USC head coaching vacancy has spread rumors far and wide, including to some current and previous coaches in the B1G. Penn State coach James Franklin reportedly has interest in the job.
Meanwhile, former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer claims he’s content with his new role as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Next up is Rutgers coach Greg Schiano who’s name has been tossed into the mix. Schiano has guided Rutgers to a 2-0 record so far this season. Schiano is saying that the topic is a non-issue and his focus is on Rutgers.
“There’s nothing to talk about, guys. I promise you,” Schiano said according to 247 Sports. “We’re just figuring out how to get our first down. That stuff is really not in my wheelhouse. Like, zero.”
Schiano was a defensive assistant for the Chicago Bears from 1996-1998 and was head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2012-2013. As an NFL head coach, Schiano posted an 11-21 record.
Rutgers will aim to improve to 3-0 when they host Delaware on Sept. 18 (3:30 p.m. EST/BTN).
