Schiano’s son suspended for rest of HS season for swearing at ref
Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano has been preaching discipline at work, but may need to take a bit of that home with him as well.
Schiano’s son Joe, a sophomore linebacker at Tampa’s Berkeley Prep, has been suspended for the rest of the season after being ejected from a game for swearing at a referee, according to Mike Camunas of the Tampa Tribune.
Maybe it runs in the family, as reports described Schiano as a “bully” during his time at Rutgers, making things difficult for visiting NFL scouts.
According to a Florida High School Athletic Association report obtained by the Tribune, the younger Schiano was ejected from a game against Lennard for using profanity at a referee, which is considered a “Level 2'’ unsportsmanlike conduct.
That carries a six-week suspension from the FHSAA, and extends through Nov. 9, the date of his team’s last game. The school has appealed the suspension, but otherwise didn’t comment.
