Big 10 Program's Fans Already Calling For Head Coach To Be Fired

Greg Schiano is effectively the architect of the Rutgers football program, bringing the Scarlet Knights out of the depths of the sport.

As the team struggles with lowly Kansas, some fans want to see him back on the sideline.

Rutgers currently trails 24-7 in Lawrence, and is at risk of becoming KU's second Power Five win in four years under David Beaty. Naturally, patience is running a bit thin with head coach Chris Ash.

Some Rutgers football fans are calling for the program to bring Greg Schiano back.

From Twitter:

Honestly, it wouldn't be the most surprising move for either side. Schiano's reputation took a hit with the Tennessee debacle earlier this year, but it probably wouldn't impact Rutgers, where he previously led the program for a decade.

We could also see a de facto coach trade.

Schiano replaced Chris Ash on the Ohio State staff when he took over at Rutgers. Ash could very well end up back in his old job in this scenario.

Schiano was 68-67 as head coach at Rutgers from 2001-11. After four losing seasons to start his tenure, he took Rutgers to bowl games in six of his final seven years, including an 11-2 campaign in 2006.
