    The hiring of Rutgers coach Greg Schiano to fill the vacant Buccaneers job moved at light speed Thursday morning, and now according to CBSSports.com’s Brett McMurphy, the deal is done and Schiano has accepted the job. The hiring of Schiano is a big surprise, considering his name wasn’t mentioned among the numerous other candidates who the Buccaneers supposedly were after (including Oregon’s Chip Kelly, who accepted the job before changing his mind, and Mike Sherman and Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, who were offered second interviews). But according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the two sides met twice without any word leaking to the media, including Wednesday. Apparently, Bill Rees -- who’s in charge of Tampa Bay’s college scouting -- stayed in touch with Schiano throughout the hiring process. So, it appears the Buccaneers had Schiano -- who will replace Raheem Morris after his 4-12 season -- in mind the entire time.

    Wow...bizarre hiring IMO. How many good years has Rutgers had since he was there?

    Almost no NFL experience...very surprising. I don't get it. They definitely need to hire 2 coordinators with a LOT of NFL experience!

    after an exhaustive search, THIS is what they come up with? a college guy that hasn't had much more than a cup of coffee in the NFL and it was 15 years ago?

    The Bucs are a mess

    That's what I'm saying. It's a bizarre hiring. If they don't hire an OC and DC with a good amount of NFL experience, this team could wind up being a disaster.

    I'd love to know the thought behind this hiring...

    :) well, when even Dragonite knew this was a crapty hire, I'm not sure that really applies in this case.

    I like the most recent hire though mush. Lovie WILL bring them back to respectability and some playoff appearances.
