Greg Schiano Will Stay at Ohio State After Rumors He'd Join Patriots Staff

Wednesday February 7th, 2018 - New England Patriots Tickets

Despite rumors he would be joining Bill Belichick's coaching staff for the New England Patriots, Greg Schiano will remain the defensive coordinator at Ohio State in 2018.   

Per Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman, Schiano said on Wednesday he was staying with the Buckeyes after Zach Barnett of FootballScoop had reported Schiano would be named New England's defensive coordinator. 

The Patriots are in the market for a new defensive coordinator after Matt Patricia, who had been with the team since 2004, was hired as head coach of the Detroit Lions. 

Feldman noted Brian Flores, who has served as New England's linebackers coach for the past two seasons, could be in line to take over Patricia's old job. 

Belichick's son, Stephen, was a long snapper at Rutgers in 2011 when Schiano was the head coach. 

Ohio State hired Schiano as an associate head coach/defensive coordinator in 2016. The Buckeyes have finished third and 16th in scoring defense during his two seasons with the program.
