Rutgers is in talks with FIU coach Mario Cristobal to become its next coach, ESPN's Joe Schad confirmed Monday.
The New Jersey Press Media and Newark Star-Ledger also reported that Cristobal will replace Greg Schiano, who resigned to take over the Tampa Bay Bucs job last week.
Cristobal's name came up immediately when Schiano left. He is a young up-and-coming coach who previously worked at Rutgers under Schiano. Just like Schiano, he did a masterful job building FIU, taking the young FBS program to back-to-back bowl games for the first time in its history.
