Greg Schiano Net Worth 2019: $4.5 Million
Greg Schiano, the former head football coach at Rutgers University and current defensive coordinator at Ohio State University, is worth approximately $4.5 million.
Schiano began his coaching in 1988 as an assistant coach at Ramapo High School in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey.
In 1989, Schiano served as a graduate assistant at Rutgers. In 1990, he took the same position at Penn State and later served as the defensive backfield coach there from 1991 until 1995. From 1996 to 1998, Schiano was an assistant coach in the NFL with the Chicago Bears.
For his first two seasons there, he was a defensive assistant and then was promoted in his third and final season with the Bears to defensive backfield coach.
Schiano served as defensive coordinator for the University of Miami from 1999 to 2000. In 1999, Miami finished the year ranked 12th in the NCAA’s Division I-A in points allowed per game (17.2), and in 2000 moved up to 5th (15.5 points allowed per game). His brief 18-month stint at Miami and his roots in New Jersey made him a candidate for his next position as head coach at Rutgers University.
On January 26, 2012, Schiano accepted his first head coaching opportunity at the professional football level, with the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers ended the 2012 regular season with a 7–9 record, missing the playoffs in the process. In the 2013–2014 season, the team regressed to 4–12.
On December 30, 2013, the Buccaneers fired Schiano along with Mark Dominik, the general manager who had selected him.
In 2016, after two seasons coaching Berkeley Preparatory School and sending two players to Davidson College in North Carolina, Schiano was hired by head coach Urban Meyer to serve as defensive coordinator/associate head coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes football program.
On November 26, 2017, the University of Tennessee was set to announce Schiano as the head football coach. However, controversy sparked by social media regarding Schiano’s tenure at Penn State and alleged involvement in the Penn State child sex abuse scandal led to both parties backing out of the deal.
Greg Schiano may leave Ohio State as NFL folks are very interested in bringing Greg Schiano on as defensive coordinator.
Greg Schiano is likely to take over the top defensive role for the Patriots as Brian Flores is expected to become head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
