Greg Schiano and GM Mark Dominik will not return in Tampa

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired head coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik, multiple outlets have reported.

Schiano coached just two seasons in Tampa Bay, posting a record of 11-21. He earned an early spot on the proverbial hot seat as the Buccaneers started this season 0-8. But the Bucs recovered over the third quarter of the season, winning four of five games from mid-November to early December. Many thought Schiano saved his job over that stretch.

A three-game losing streak to close the year proved to be Schiano's ultimate undoing, however.

Schiano guided Rutgers to a 68-67 record in 11 seasons as head coach, turning one of college football's worst programs into a consistent winner. The Scarlet Knights went 49-33 over his final six seasons. That success led Tampa Bay to hire him, and it will make him a hot name on the college coaching circuit should he choose to go that route.

Dominik has been Tampa Bay's general manager since 2009, and he now becomes the NFL's first GM to be let go following the 2013 season. 

Schiano is the fifth NFL head coach to be fired this season, and 13th over the past two seasons.
