TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Rutgers' Greg Schiano to become the team's next coach.
Bucs general manager Mark Dominik confirmed the five-year contract Thursday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
ESPN first reported the Bucs had hired Schiano.
The 45-year-old Schiano had been with the Scarlet Knights for 11 seasons, taking them from college football laughingstock to a program that has had winning records in six of the last seven years. He was an assistant coach in the NFL with Chicago from 1996-98.
The Bucs fired Raheem Morris on Jan. 2 after a 4-12 finish that included 10 straight losses to end the season.
