FOXBORO MA- SEPTEMBER 22 Bill Belichick of the New England shakes hands with Greg Schiano of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at their end of their game at Gillette Stadium

The New England Patriots will name Greg Schiano as their new defensive coordinator Wednesday, a source told Jim McBride of the Boston Globe.

Belichick praised Schiano during a press conference at time when asked about him possibly getting hired by Tennessee. Crennel was the first defensive coordinator under Belichick - the coach did it himself in 2000. The Patriots hiring Schiano shouldn't come as a surprise.

Schiano has experience coaching at both college and professional levels.

Schiano was, perhaps, most successful in building Rutgers from 2001 to 2011. He built a close relationship with Belichick while leading the Scarlet Knights, coaching future Patriots Devin and Jason McCourty and Duron Harmon, as well as Belichick's son and current Patriots safeties coach Steve Belichick.

Schiano, 52, is coming off a two-year stint as Ohio State's defensive coorinator/associate head coach.

It's worth noting that he's been incidentally and directly connected with controversy. Unsealed testimony from former assistant coach Mike McQueary said that he heard Schiano saw Sandusky "doing something" to a boy in the showers. Meyer was suspended for three games for his role in the scandal. Belichick later recommended Schiano to the Bucs. Matt Patricia left the role at the end of the 2017 season to become head coach of the Detroit Lions.

The 52-year-old will now be returning back to the National Football League to coach the Patriots' defense and fill the vacancy left by Flores.
