Greg Schiano elevated Rutgers from the bottom of college football into a respectable program during an 11-year tenure before bolting to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in January. Now, he's trying to apply a similar turnaround in the NFL.
While with the Scarlet Knights, Schiano became familiar with Andy Reid and the Eagles. The Eagles drafted Rutgers players, and Reid also made himself available to Schiano.
"Coach Reid is a special, special person, and he did some things with our football team, that I know with the way Andy is, he doesn't like it mentioned, and I'll keep it private," Schiano said. "That would be my biggest impression of the organization - is the quality of man Coach Reid is and what he's willing to do."
