Greg Schiano’s fate will most likely won’t be known until tomorrow afternoon following the Bucs final game on Sunday evening against the Saints. But reports throughout the early part of Sunday have a number of different scenarios playing out.
The first report on Sunday came from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport who reported, Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner is “mulling flying down to Tampa” in order to try and convince Schiano “in person” to come to Penn State.
Last Tuesday Schiano was asked about a report he, or someone in his camp, had expressed interest if the job at Penn State, currently held by Bill O’Brien, becomes available.
“There’s zero truth to that,” Schiano told the media on Tuesday when asked about reported interest. “Let me make it clear, the only job I want is the one I have right now.”
O’Brien is currently in negotiations to be succeed Gary Kubiak in Houston.
As the NFL pregame shows began on Sunday other pundits weighed in, including Chris Mortensen who reported that Schiano is safe and that Josh Freeman’s inability to work into the starting lineup in Minnesota has helped Schiano’s cause.
Then, later on Sunday, during the FOX Sports pregame show, Jay Glazer also reported that Schiano is going to be back in 2014.
So what will happen? No one but the Glazer family knows for sure, and although they may be leaning one way or the other, a blowout loss to the Saints – or a Bucs win – could influence their decision.
