Greg Schiano has met with New Jersey governor Phil Murphy to discuss a possible return to Rutgers, according to

The meeting is significant because Rutgers may need help and/or approval from the state government in order to build the football infrastructure Schiano deems necessary for his return.

Schiano, of course, served as Rutgers’ head coach from 2001-11, where his 68 wins represent the most successful run by a Scarlet Knights head coach during the program’s modern era.

According to the report, the two sides are on the same page in regards to Schiano’s contract but are still ironing out details of the school’s plans to build a new football facility.

FootballScoop first reported on Schiano’s imminent return to Piscataway back in September.

The two sides could reach an agreement “sometime this week,” but a formal announcement is not expected until next week at the earliest, according to the report.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
