What's Next For Schiano And Dominik?

The Buccaneers have moved on from general manager Mark Dominik and head coach Greg Schiano. But where will Dominik, who has been with the organization for 19 years, and Schiano move on to? PewterReport.com discusses some possibilities.
What’s next for former general manager Mark Dominik and head coach Greg Schiano now that both have been dismissed by Tampa Bay? It is believed that Dominik had one year left on his contract with the Buccaneers, while Schiano had three years remaining and was to be paid a total of $9 million over that span.

For Schiano, there have been reports that he could be pursued by Penn State University. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner is considering flying to Tampa to make a push to hire Schiano, a former Nittany Lions assistant coach under the legendary Joe Paterno, should Bill O’Brien leave the school for the head coaching job of the Houston Texans as expected.

After Sunday’s 42-17 loss at New Orleans, Schiano said he had not spoken with Penn State about the possible opening.

“I made the comment on Wednesday and I will reiterate it,” Schiano said. “I or no one connected with me has had any contact with Penn State. I said it Wednesday and I’ll say it again. The job I have is the job I want.”

Now that he has been fired, Schiano’s interest in the Penn State position, should it become available, would likely rise significantly as a return to college football would be a wise move.

Dominik has spent 19 years in Tampa Bay and has a history in pro personnel prior to his five seasons as the team’s general manager. Dominik has worked with several NFL front office personnel over the years and has connections with various teams.

Dominik worked for many years for two previous general managers in Tampa Bay – Rich McKay and Bruce Allen. McKay is currently the team president and CEO of the Atlanta Falcons, although he is not the team’s general manager after being relieved of those duties in 2008 with the arrival of Thomas Dimitroff. Allen is currently the general manager for the Washington Redskins.

In addition to several league contacts that Dominik has made throughout his NFL career that has spanned more than 20 years but hasn’t worked with, he has also worked with Tennessee executive vice president and general manager Ruston Webster in Tampa Bay, in addition to working with New York Jets general manager John Idzik with the Buccaneers. Dominik also worked with St. Louis chief operating officer Kevin Demoff in Tampa Bay and formed a close friendship with him.

The well-spoken, knowledgeable and telegenic Dominik would also be a natural for television as an NFL insider on any of the national networks.

    Let me get this straight Morgan; Scott Reynolds and Steve Dumig have enough influence over the billionaires who own our favorite team to make them fire their top two employees and continue to pay them millions for the remainder of their contracts? You don't suppose the dismal won-loss record had much to do with it huh? So Scott; who are you and Steve going to tell the boys to hire?

    I'm Luke Keakly..grrr..I mean luke warm on the firing of Dominic. I guess he had to go but he's done some good things for us and i suspect he will have a job with an NFL team fairly quickly. Perhaps not as a GM, but maybe an assistant GM or capologist. He's done a GREAT job with our contracts and cap situation. I suppose sometimes it's just time. Good luck, Dom, you've worn pewter all the way back to the creamsickle. Thank you for trying so hard for so long to bring us a winner.

    Schiano should be coaching a mid level college team. Dominick should be nothing more than a high school AD.

    thank you, thank you and those who still believe in domindork yeah right hes so good teams will be knocking down the door not

    agree like Rich McKay who put the Bucs in Cap Hell I will never understand the infatuation with Dominik. I still remember him trading a 5th rounder to move up to grab Benn followed by the panic pick of Myron Lewis in the third. Like McKay Dominik might be one of the nicest guys on the planet but I am not impressed with anything more than his ability to write checks and unlike McKay having an understanding of Cap. I will be very surprised to ever see him being designated as GM for any other NFL team in the future. I found it rather irritating to see him only in front of the camera when the Bucs were successful but nowhere to be found when they were doing poorly. I do believe Schiano is being made the scapegoat and I am sure if hired will be successful at Penn State.

    Dominik will get a chance again to prove his worth. Schiano needs to go back to college where I believe he belongs to help build character for many of these young athletics.

    hey writer -you and DUI-mig got your wish - you ran these two out of town. Congrats on your success.

    See ProFootballTalk for some classy remarks by Schiano: "Next Bucs coach is taking over a good situation."

    The NFL is a forgiving league, Dominik will get another chance. Schiano is a college coach, not suited for the NFL. He will get a shot at a Northeast school before long. Best of luck to the both of them!

    What will happen to GS & Dom? Don't know, don't care.

    Dom I would think will do well. He's young and has gained some good experience..although some may be what NOT to do. He has served the BUCS well over the years and I do think it is just circumstance he had to do. Schiano on the other hand.....didn't like it when they hired him....didn't like it when he started running players out of town...just plain have no use for the way he operates. He seems like a decent guy but no way can he handle pro players. IMHO and that is all it is. Of course he will not need a job for some time as we are going to pay him a kings ransom to leave town. I'm thinking a fishing boat captain???? Nope, he'd have to deal with paying customers, that wouldn't work. Back to academia then....? It's the first good day to be a BUCS fan in a long time. GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dominik should do TV work. Less stress. He'd be good at it, too.

    I'd expect Schiano to end up at a community college somewhere, to be called back up to division I when Skip Holtz get fired from whatever flea bag college he's working for now days. Dominick will follow in steps of all former front office Bucs and end up in Chicago or Seattle.
