Rutgers OKs deal to bring back Schiano as football coach

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Greg Schiano is back as Rutgers football coach.

The university’s Board of Governors has approved an agreement to bring back the former Scarlet Knights coach to lead the program.

The 53-year-old Schiano gets an eight-year, $32 million deal.

The New Jersey native went 68-67 at Rutgers from 2001-11 and turned the Scarlet Knights into consistent winners after years of being one of the worst major college football programs in the country.
