A person familiar with the negotiations says the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in talks with Rutgers’ Greg Schiano to become the team’s next coach.

ESPN first reported that the Bucs and Schiano are close to an agreement.

The 46-year-old Schiano has been with the Scarlet Knights for 11 seasons, taking them from college football laughingstock to a program that has had winning records in six of the last seven years. He was an assistant coach in the NFL with Chicago from 1996-98.

He was the University of Miami’s defensive coordinator for two seasons before returning to his home state to coach Rutgers in 2001. Schiano is 68-67 at Rutgers.

The Bucs fired Raheem Morris earlier this month after Tampa Bay went 4-12 in his third season with the team.
