Kelly's choice paved the NFL road for Schiano
By Rob Maaddi/AP

If Chip Kelly hadn't turned the Tampa Bay Buccaneers down, Greg Schiano might not be in the NFL.

The two coaches can talk about their career paths when the Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) visit the Buccaneers (0-4) on Sunday.

Two years ago, the Glazer family tried to lure Kelly away from Oregon. The three Glazer brothers and general manager Marc Dominik met Kelly on the road while he was on a recruiting trip, made a pitch and offered him the job in Tampa.

Kelly declined, respectfully. And Greg Schiano, then at Rutgers, slipped into that spot. Two years later, they are both in the NFC, both head coaches at the highest level of the game, and both looking for some consistency from rebuilding teams.
