Timing of Schiano's firing curious
December 31, 2013 - Neil Rudel
As we await resolution on the Bill O'Brien Sweepstakes, I found it very interesting that Tampa Bay fired Greg Schiano on Monday.
Knowing his name had already come up regarding the possible/likely PSU opening, Tampa Bay could have done Schiano a favor by waiting another day or two before pulling the plug.
Now, if O'Brien leaves, Schiano is more tainted than he may have otherwise been, though it's hard to believe PSU is going to hire someone who worked with Jerry Sandusky for five years.
It tells me Tampa Bay's message was: 1) This is a business; 2) We didn't like the guy.
