Schianno Bolts NE Staff

Recommended Posts

It's fun to make fun of the Patriots, but...  these coaches are real people and have real life situations (outside of football) come up, just like all of the rest of us.  I believe there was something outside of football that immediately needed his attention, and they would like to keep private business private.

 

I just hope nothing (too) tragic and wish him the best.

Interesting situation.  He says-

 

“This is not the result of any one event, but rather a realization that I need to spend more time on my faith and family. I don’t want to look back years from now and wish I had done things differently. Therefore, I am taking time away from the game to recalibrate my priorities.”

 

The Patriots never formally introduced him as their DC, but it had to have caught Belichick off guard as he had just been interviewed by Duke basketball coach K and BB admitted-

 

“We’ve added Coach Schiano to our defensive staff,” Belichick said. “He’s a very experienced and outstanding fundamental coach, good teacher, and has a lot of experience in both the college and the pro game. He coached a lot of our players. We have quite a few guys from Rutgers and I think he could be a great addition too.”

 

I don't know, but hope the best.

Yes....this has to be somewhat deflating for Belichick. :burnout::peek:

Sure, only family... The guy takes a coaching job, then a year later realizes, "Oh snap, I forgot about my family!" Then quits.

@ReMeDy, he has three kids in high school and college.  His wife is home anticipating an empty nest while he is working around the clock in Foxboro.  What could possibly go wrong?  Or, he has a college HC gig.  Who knows...

He is obviously a religious man and doesn't want to work

for a guy that promotes the sex trafficking trade.

One look at the Patriots organization and he decided he must have done something to displease God, so he decided he better start spending more time on his faith.  He probably decided if he spent a year with the Patriots, he'd have to spend the rest of his life on his knees reciting Hail Mary. :)

I don’t pretend to know if Schianno is a religious man or not.   But he has a long history of being a world class jerk everywhere he’s been.   He’s been a jerk to media, to players, to opponents...   pretty much everyone.  He wasn’t acting much like a religious guy back then.   Maybe he’s found God later in life?   He wouldn’t be the first person.   I sincerely hope his problems are not with his wife and kids. 

 

But I’ll reserve my sympathy for Schianno until I learn more details.  I just don’t believe the man.  He’s neither trustworthy or credible.

I heard the other day Kraft called him up to his office and told him, since he won't be traveling to Florida anymore he was going to expect a few more things as part of Schianno's "job duties".

    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....      
    • Middleton had a contract that was 4 years or longer and the Bucks have his bird rights. That doesn't apply for Randle and the Pelicans.
    • I can’t believe they’d leave out the Collins/Painter/Orlovsky trio. Those three men are instrumental in Colts lore. 
    • Bert Jones....if not for that shoulder injury, who knows what might have been. 
    • i would have loved to see Mike Hart, Donald brown in his prime Dominique Rhodes and Joseph addai run behind our solid oline. I bet they all would have had amazing rushing stats last year
