NFL News : Bill Belichick defends man who allegedly covered up child rape

Bill Belichick defends man who allegedly covered up child rape

He used to work for him

Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

Greg Schiano, Ohio State's defensive coordinator and Bill Belichick friend, was hired and then fired from the head coach job at the University of Tennessee in the span of a few hours. There was a huge backlash that came from people involved with the university and the state because Schiano apparently knew about Jerry Sandusky raping kids at Penn State when he was a coach there and did nothing. 

Here's what Belichick had to say about him:

Sure.

"Greg Schiano had been an annual visitor to New England Patriots' minicamps prior to becoming the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Schiano has consulted with Belichick on a variety of topics, most notably defense."
