Rutgers welcomed back Greg Schiano , saying he is "the right coach at the right time" for the program. Schiano left Ohio State after last season when the Buckeyes struggled on his side of the ball, and he briefly took a job as an assistant with the New England Patriots earlier this year.

In addition to having a personality that rubs a lot of people the wrong way, there are also some who believe Schiano had knowledge of what was going on with Jerry Sandusky when he was an assistant coach at Penn State. Schiano has vehemently.
Tennessee was on the verge of having a press conference to announce the Schiano hiring, but fans. Time will tell if that ended up being a good thing for Rutgers.
