It seems that just weeks into accepting his second attempt to find success in the NFL was simply to great of a task to bear this time around. Citing that he need to spend more time on his faith and family.
“I have informed Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick that I am stepping down from my position at the Patriots,” Schiano said. “This is not the result of any one event, but rather a realization that I need to spend more time on my faith and family. I don’t want to look back years from now and wish I had done things differently. Therefore, I am taking time away from the game to recalibrate my priorities.”
Schiano was the Head Coach for Tampa Bay for just two seasons, 2012-2013, before being fired in favor of Lovie Smith. In those two years his teams went, 11-21. He brought with him discipline and strictness that seemingly wasn’t received well by players. After a short time, it became intolerable by the organization as well.
Now Schiano finds himself exiting the NFL for the second time, but on his own terms this time.
