The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are negotiating a contract with Rutgers coach Greg Schiano to fill the team’s head coaching position, according to multiple reports on Thursday.

The move comes after Oregon head coach Chip Kelly accepted the position over the weekend but changed his mind Monday morning and decided to stay in the college ranks.
