Second-year Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano might be on one of the hottest seats in the NFL as the league heads into it’s second half. The Buccaneers shocked the NFL world on Sunday as they jumped out to a 21-0 lead in Seattle over the Seahawks. Despite holding a 24-3 lead at the start of the third quarter, Tampa came away with another loss, 27-24 in overtime. This is now the 14th loss in 15 games for the Buccaneers under Schiano’s leadership. It seems as if his house is up for sale, and he’s lowered the price.
Many Buccaneers fans are ready to run Schiano out of town and this news might come as welcome news, but the house Schiano has up for sale is actually in New Jersey, his abode he owned when he was the coach of Rutgers University.
NJ.com reports that his former house, an 8,500 square foot house near the Rutgers stadium has seen another price reduction. Originally listed at $2.3 million, the price has been reduced to a mere $1.595 million. It’s a beautiful house. I love the photos of the kitchen, I could do some damage in there.
The newspaper reports that the latest price drop on the house happened on October 28th, just days after the Buccaneers lost a nationally broadcast game against the Carolina Panthers. They also outline how Schiano got a “sweetheart” deal on the construction of his house, although he seemingly has paid the property off since becoming the Buccaneers head coach.
Tampa was believed to be one of the teams in the mix for a wildcard playoff berth this season after some high profile off-season signings. Under his leadership, the Buccaneers are now in first place to land the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Schiano might have two properties up for sale come January, while trying to figure out where he and his family want to live next.
