Coach won't return to Rutgers

Greg Schiano won't be returning to Rutgers because the school and its former coach were unable to come to an agreement on a deal, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press on Sunday.

Schiano, who spent 11 seasons at Rutgers before leaving for the NFL in 2012, was offered an eight-year, $32 million contract along with $7.5 million to spend on coaches and football operations staff, according to the person. The two sides couldn't agree on what investments into facilities and infrastructure were needed for Rutgers to be able to compete in the Big Ten, the person said.
