Schiano has now left to become the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and National Signing Day a little more than a week away, the Scarlet Knights are already lining up candidates to replace Schiano.

According to Tom Luicci of The Star-Ledger, here are five guys who appear to be on Rutgers' radar: Steve Addazio, Mario Cristobal, Pat Flaherty, James Franklin and Bobby Diaco.
