Penn State Coaching Search: Greg Schiano Not Interested, According To Report

Rutgers coach Greg Schiano has been a popular choice among fans to replace Joe Paterno at Penn State through the years. According to Ron Musselman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, however, the Wyckoff, N.J. native has not interviewed for the job and is not interested.

Schiano, a graduate of nearby Bucknell, was a graduate assistant under Paterno in 1990, then coached Penn State's defensive backs from 1991-1995. He left to take an assistant's job with the Chicago Bears, then served as Miami's defensive coordinator from 1999-2000 before landing at Rutgers in 2001.

While there, he's posted a 68-67 record, including a 5-1 bowl record. His best season was an 11-2 campaign with the Scarlet Knights in 2006, which saw them rise to a No. 6 ranking in the polls at one point. For those reasons, many have hoped he could be lured back to Happy Valley at the end of Paterno's career. It doesn't look like that's going to happen right now, though.
