The house of former Bucs head coach Greg Schiano sold for a near-record $6.6 million, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times. Schiano built a 10,850-square foot mansion in the prestigious Culbreath Isles community in South Tampa in 2013, which was his final season as head coach in Tampa Bay. The sale was the second-largest residential real estate sale in Hillsborough County, according to the Times. The top sale was a $6.75 million mansion on Bayshore Boulevard five years ago.

Schiano, who signed a five-year, $15-million contract with the Bucs in 2012 after leaving Rutgers University, spent the 2014-15 seasons out of football after being fired after only two seasons in Tampa Bay. He was hired by Urban Meyer to become the defensive coordinator at Ohio State University last December, signing a one-year deal.

Author of the popular SR's Fab 5 column on Fridays, Reynolds oversees web development and forges marketing partnerships for PewterReport.com in addition to his editorial duties.

He should give every penny he made back just because of that stupid Revis trade

Who needs 10,000 SF? Now that we have empty nest we don’t even use half of our relatively modest house. I’m mostly in my 150SF Bucs Room.

Good for Coach Schiano. He never got a true shot here and was stuck with Raheem Morris holdover QB Josh Freeman. Between the immaturity and adderall problem that was in the locker room with “leaders” Talib and Freeman (to name a few), I was surprised the Bucs fired him. Cream rises to the top and now the guy has a national championship and was responsible for getting a number of defenders drafted in the first round in last years draft. I am sure he will go on to be a winner. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet.… Read more »

A lot of the media turned on Schiano because of the Freeman-MERSA, debacles, neither of which were Schiano’s fault. Freeman wasn’t his choice but I really believe he would have wanted to have kept him if he had not remained being the party boy and least studious QB on the team. Schiano couldn’t tolerate immaturity, least of all from his QB and supposed team leader. His last draft really produced some solid players but passing on Luke Kuechly for the safety was a bonehead move. Of course we will never know if that was a Dummynick or Schiano move. imagine… Read more »

Great post drdneast. I couldn’t agree more. Also remember Schiano was hired very late and didn’t have much to pick from for a coaching staff.

I agree. He never had a decent shot when he got here with the party mentality of the players, A QB who was already done and a dishonest media attacking him.

The man I believe should have given morew time. Remember fans alot of coaches that come from the college ranks learn over time. I hope the Glazers will give the new coaching staff time. Iam looking to the Bucs future.
