Sources: Schiano met with UM officials

Former Hurricane defensive coordinator Greg Schiano met with school officials regarding the head coaching job, according to our sources.

My sources have confirmed that former UM assistant coach Greg Schiano met with school officials on Sunday. Schiano is just the second known candidate to have met with school officials. Butch Davis did so on Saturday.

Schiano was the school's defensive coordinator under Davis during the 2000 season before leaving for the head coaching job at Rutgers. He coached the Scarlet Knights for several years before becoming head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs. He's been out of coaching the last two seasons and is also considered to be a leading candidate for the Rutgers job.

According to Football Scoop, the school hopes to have the position filled by Wednesday of this week.

"Sources tell us that Miami hopes to have made their selection no later than Wednesday," their report said.
