A staunch defense and the powerful running of Ray Rice were the main reasons for Rutgers' 11-2 record and No. 12 ranking in the final Associated Press poll last season. Now, as the Scarlet Knights get ready to open spring practice on Saturday, coach Greg Schiano hopes some shuffling of his coaching staff leads to further improvement. Schiano said yesterday that John McNulty, who coached quarterbacks and receivers and was assistant offensive coordinator, has been moved to offensive coordinator.

Greg Schiano was like so many other Jersey boys when he was growing up in Bergen County. College football loyalties were torn between Penn State and Syracuse. Rutgers? He'd never been to the state's university and had only a vague notion of where it was. "I think there's a whole generation of people who might be able to say that same thing," Schiano said during a recent telephone interview. "I was a Penn State fan. " Fast-forward to 1989, when then-Rutgers coach Dick Anderson gave him his first college coaching job as a graduate assistant.

Barring a drastic change, Steve Addazio will remain Temple's football coach, according to sources close to the situation. "He's not going to Rutgers," said one source with inside knowledge. Multiple reports have put Addazio among the leading candidates for the Scarlet Knights job, which opened Thursday when Greg Schiano was hired by the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Addazio replaced Al Golden at Temple in December 2010. The former Florida offensive coordinator led the Owls to a 9-4 record and a 37-15 victory over Wyoming in the New Mexico Bowl in his first season at Temple.

TAMPA, Fla. - After the way the Buccaneers finished last season, it was obvious the team would be coached by someone new in 2012. Tampa Bay, which surprisingly won 10 games and barely missed the playoffs under Raheem Morris in 2010, foundered last season. How bad were things for the Buccaneers last year? Not only did the team end 4-12, but did so by losing its final 10 games of the season. Tampa Bay, which went 3-13 in Morris' first season, turned over the ball 40 times and surrendered a franchise-record 494 points.

Fixing the record on Rutgers remarks This letter responds to several points, including some that we believe are inaccurate, raised by Robert Strauss in his Nov. 22 commentary ("Victim of its hyped success") about academics and athletics at Rutgers. Referring to the budget crisis at the university - the result of an unprecedented cut in state funds - Strauss said Rutgers "has given" land to football coach Greg Schiano to build a house. Rutgers sold the property to coach Greg Schiano for $325,000 - the higher of two appraisals - and the coach will pay for the cost of building a home on the property.

TAMPA, Fla. - Greg Schiano relishes the challenge of trying to turn around the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

For Sunday's game in Tampa, one team will definitely start a very tall, slightly goofy-looking, inexperienced quarterback who began the season as a backup. And the other team is the Eagles. Actually, if Nick Foles does step in to replace Michael Vick against the Buccaneers, which looks increasingly likely, both teams will be in that same situation. For the Eagles, however, the transition to Foles, who did start six games as a rookie in 2012, should be relatively smooth. Foles and Vick got an equal number of practice reps during the spring and summer, and Foles has been working with the first unit this week as Vick slowly recovers from the hamstring pull that sidelined him just before halftime against the Giants.

Shortly after his junior season at Cedar Creek, Damon Mitchell received his first scholarship offer. It was from Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights wanted him to play safety for them. Fourteen months later, after a sensational senior season and more than 20 other offers, Mitchell has circled back to Rutgers - although much has changed about the football program at the state university and the nature of the Scarlet Knights' pursuit of the 6-3, 205-pound athlete. Mitchell, a first-team all-South Jersey Inquirer selection, appears to have narrowed his college choices to Rutgers and Arkansas.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy missed the cut at the Abu Dhabi Championship on Friday, a woeful start to the season for the world's top two golfers. Woods missed it after he was penalized 2 shots for wrongly taking a free drop, while top-ranked McIlroy was frustrated trying to adjust to his new Nike clubs, even though he used his old Titleist putter in the second round. Both finished with 3-over 75s. Justin Rose played solid, mistake-free golf.

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.

Rutgers took its turn Tuesday expressing thanks for being approved for admission as the 14th member of the Big Ten Conference, saying it was a good fit with the league's other institutions. But the move of the Scarlet Knights from the Big East to the Big Ten primarily is about stability for their athletic programs and the increased money that will be generated by their affiliation with the conference. Finances have been an issue at Rutgers since the football team rose from doormat status to being competitive.

FOR THE LONGEST time, Temple's football team really hasn't had one of those backyard scrum to claim as its very own. Saturday at the Linc, that will change. The Owls (3-2), who are 2-0 in the Big East for the first time, now get No. 19 Rutgers (6-0, 3-0), the second highest ranked of the conference's three unbeatens. The teams haven't played since Temple was asked to leave the conference after the 2004 season. New Brunswick, N.J., and Philadelphia are only separated by 60 miles. "College football is at its best when it's regional," said first-year Rutgers coach Kyle Flood, who was on the staff the past seven seasons under Greg Schiano.

Sweet dreams, Jets. Hoping that catching a few extra Z's translates into better performance on the field, the New York Jets recently brought in sleep specialists to help the players get more rest. Coach Rex Ryan also pushed back the team's schedule by about 90 minutes this week, giving the players a chance to be more energized and attentive during meetings and practice. "If we can gain a little advantage, then we're going to look for it," Ryan said. The players received handouts earlier in the week about how sleep helps performance, and practices were shortened a bit.   Schiano ripped The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have instilled a new attitude with first-year coach Greg Schiano, but his tactics have been under scrutiny since he ordered his defense to fire into the backfield on a kneel-down by the New York Giants at the end of last Sunday's game.
