The last we heard from Greg Schiano was in March when he stepped down from being on Bill Belichick's staff without even being officially announced as a member of it.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Schiano cited a "need to spend more time on my faith and family," which came less than two months after he reportedly joined the Patriots.

Now, it appears Schiano is interested in becoming the head coach of Rutgers -- again.

According to ESPN, Schiano met with Rutgers officials in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday for a meeting that lasted several hours.

He did not accept the job following the meeting and a deal is not close since Schiano has a few asks, including a new indoor facility, upgrades for other facilities and a dramatic increase in assistant coaches' salaries.

The school apparently has a "very short" list of candidates to replace Chris Ash who was fired in late Sept.

Schiano was Rutgers' head coach from 2001-11 and was most recently the defensive coordinator at Ohio State before his brief stay with the Patriots.
