‘Fire Schiano’ Movement Reaches Billboard Status


Long before Greg Schiano became head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he employed a certain recruiting tactic designed to lure some of Florida’s finest talent to play for his Rutgers Scarlett Knights — a strategy that has come back to haunt him now that his Buccaneers are 0-6.

A billboard has surfaced in North Tampa with the words “Fire Schiano” engulfed in flames. Of course it comes just in time for tonight’s nationally-televised Thursday Night Football game (and Halloween).

The radio station 102.5 The Bone is responsible for the ad, which can be viewed in all its glory along the fine corridors of Bearrs and Nebraska.
