Tampa Bay Buccaneers ownership not expected to fire Greg Schiano


The final eek of the season is filled with as much coaching drama as it always is playoff drama. While some coaches are aligning themselves for a spot in the postseason, others are waking up wondering if they’ll have jobs when they go to sleep tonight. One of those coaches is and has been Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano who has gone from being a guy we expected to be fired before anyone else to a guy that apparently has two jobs if he wants them.

Rumors have been swirling about Penn State prepping to go hard after Schiano if Bill O’Brien leaves for an NFL gig, but according to ESPN’s Christ Mortensen and FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer, Greg Schiano’s job in Tampa Bay is safe and a third year of Schiano is expected to happen for the Bucs.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard Josh Freeman’s failure with the Vikings had an effect on Schiano’s job security. It looks like the struggles by the former Buccaneers quarterback bought Schiano another year but there’s no guarantee he’ll remain in Tampa if Penn State comes calling.

So over the course of a season, Greg Schiano has gone from a laughing stock of a head coach to a guy who has job interest at two different major levels of his profession. Thus is the nature of football it seems.
