Based solely on the curriculum, Greg Schiano certainly deserves another opportunity to direct a college football program.
The alleged knowledge of Schiano about the Jerry Sandusky scandal – based on second-hand rumors that would never be admissible in a court of law – has been reported ad nauseam in the last 36 hours.

But one of the most obvious reports was that of Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, who cited a "veteran athletic director" in an anonymous quote: "Within the industry, there was an understanding that (Schiano) had been released from his ties to the mess of the State of Pennsylvania.
AD Gene Smith of the State of Ohio echoed that sentiment, calling it "an unfounded accusation" in an interview with Cleveland.  "There was no level of substantiation around that accusation. None, "said Smith." And if you really know the man, you will see that he has great integrity and great character. "
