Greg Schiano Could End Up Replacing Brian Flores On Patriots’ Defensive Staff

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Greg Schiano could end up replacing Brian Flores as the team’s de facto defensive coordinator.

Rapoport expects Bill Belichick to call Schiano on Monday about a key position on their defensive staff.

A report from last week said that Brett Bielema had been telling people that he was likely to take over for Flores. However, it sounds like that isn’t a guarantee at this point in time. 

Schiano, 52, began his college coaching career back in 1989 as a graduate assistant for Rutgers. Since then, Schiano worked at Penn State, Miami and for the Chicago Bears before he was hired as the Buccaneers head coach in 2012.

Schiano lasted two seasons in Tampa Bay before he was fired by the Buccaneers. After a few years out of college, Schiano was hired to run Ohio State’s defense.

Last year, Schiano actually agreed to a deal to become the next head coach at Tennessee before the school backed out of the deal, due to backlash they received from the move.

During his two seasons as the Buccaneers head coach, Schiano posted a record of 11-21 (34.4 percent).
