According to reports, Greg Schiano and Rutgers could not come to an agreement. This ends weeks of speculation and negotiations that ultimately will result in a reboot of the coaching search for Chris Ash’s permanent replacement.

Our own Aaron Breitman had given some thoughts already on the possibility despite the recent negotiations.

My immediate reaction is that as I said all along there are likely better long term candidates for the job, but very few could have injected the short term boost this program needed to return to competency in all three phases of the games plus recruiting immediately. Pat Hobbs really has to show his skills in selecting solid coaches now and build on the good hires he had made in other sports.

More to come on this developing story. We welcome your immediate feedback below as more details roll in.
