Former Rutgers' DB, Devin McCourty, Talks Greg Schiano At Super Bowl 2012

The Rutgers football program has been going through a very tumultuous time since former head coach Greg Schiano left for the NFL last Thursday. On Monday, former Scarlet Knights, now New England Patriots corner back, Devin McCourty addressed the departure of Schiano and the future of the program.

"It is kind of bittersweet," said McCourty, who was a part of the famous recruiting Class of 2005 and was selected 27th overall by the Patriots in the '09 NFL Draft. "He is a big part of my development as a player, and as a person. But, you have to be happy for him. I don't know any coach in that profession that doesn't dream about being a head coach at the highest level of football. To get that opportunity, I think that's great for him.

"But, as a proud alum, seeing him go after the job he has done there at Rutgers. People said we were probably one of the worst programs in college football and then to build it up to what it is today. But, I am sure they will find a replacement and he will do a good job too."
