Bill Belichick ‘100 percent’ supports Greg Schiano after Tennessee backlash

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has always been a supporter of Schiano. He drafted several of Schiano’s Rutgers players, and Belichick’s son Stephen played long snapper for the Scarlet Knights. Belichick doubled down on his support of Schiano on Monday.

This comes after a fierce backlash from the Volunteers’ fan base. There were tweets from members of the state government, on-campus protests and local establishments saying they would not serve the former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach. Much of the outrage stemmed from documents unsealed in 2016 where Schiano is mentioned as knowing about Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse at Penn State. Schiano has denied any knowledge of the Sandusky abuse .

Schiano is also reportedly seeking compensation from Tennessee after their agreement broke down.
