For the past couple of weeks, it looked like Rutgers may be headed to a reunion with Greg Schiano for the open head coaching position.

Unfortunately, it was reported Sunday that Schiano is no longer a candidate for the vacancy. That report also indicated that a contract offer of eight years and $32 million was on the table.

As the search for a head coach regroups and moves forward, Rutgers released a statement on the search Sunday evening. The statement did not address Schiano by name.

Among other things, the statement noted that the search for a head coach is still ongoing, but Rutgers believes an announcement on a new head coach will come “shortly after the conclusion of the season.” It also said the focus is on “building a successful Big Ten Conference football program.”

Brett McMurphy shared the statement:

It will be interesting to see where the search turns next with Schiano out of the picture. The Scarlet Knights are currently 3-8 this season and will end the year with a game against Penn State. They have won four conference games since the start of 2015.
