Temple's Steve Addazio Top Choice To Replace Greg Schiano at Rutgers, According To Report

Temple Owls head football coach Steve Addazio is reportedly the top choice to replace the departed Greg Schiano at Rutgers, according to ScarletReport.com.

One and done?

Temple Owls head football coach Steve Addazio is reportedly the top choice to replace the departed Greg Schiano at Rutgers, according to ScarletReport.com, an affiliate of Scout.com. Addazio recently finished his first season at the helm of the Owls at 9-4 after two seasons as the Florida Gators' offensive coordinator.

The Philadelphia Inquirer attempted to speak to Addazio, but a team spokesperson said the coach declined the interview request and that the school does not respond to rumors.

The spokesperson did, however, deny the report.

"He has been with a recruit from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and now he's in his office," the spokesperson said.

ScareltReport.com reports that Addazio is scheduled to meet with Rutgers officials on Friday. The school is looking for Schiano replacements after the former Scarlet Knights coach left for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
