It took awhile and had its twists and turns, but Greg Schiano is back at Rutgers.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The school announced Sunday morning that Schiano will be back as its head football coach, pending a Board of Governors' vote this week.

"I believe today that Rutgers Football is on the path to greatness," athletic director Pat Hobbs said in a statement.

Schiano took Rutgers to six bowl games in his final seven seasons at the school, winning five of them. Rutgers had a 56-33 record during that span.

According to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, it is an eight-year, $32 million deal with $25.2 million guaranteed, as well as a promise the school will look into a football only training facility. Over the last few weeks talks stalled because some believed Schiano's demands were too high.

Schiano was with the Patriots for a few weeks this offseason and then there have been rumors recently he could be a potential replacement for Steve Addazio at Boston College, but that clearly will not happen, and Addazio may not even lose his job following BC becoming bowl eligible Saturday.
