Giants Line Coach Pat Flaherty A Potential Successor For Greg Schiano At Rutgers?

Could the decision by Greg Schiano to bolt Rutgers for the head-coaching job with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers end up affecting the New York Giants coaching staff? It might if the Star-Ledger is right in speculating that Giants' offensive line coach Pat Flaherty could be on the list of candidates to replace Schiano in Piscataway.

Schiano left Rutgers on Thursday in a move that caught many by surprise. Now, with just a few days until the February 1 National Signing Day for college recruits the Scarlet Knights are scrambling to quickly get a new head coach in place.

Flaherty has been the Giants' offensive line coach since 2004 and has the reputation of being one of the best line coaches in the business.

Flaherty has never been a head coach at the collegiate or pro level, but he did coach in the collegiate ranks from 1980-99 before moving to the NFL. He coached the offensive line at Rutgers from 1984-1991.

There have been no indications yet that Rutgers has contacted the Giants about Flaherty, or that the school has set up interviews with any candidates. It is, however, something to keep in mind.
