Rutgers football has finally found its new head coach, as Greg Schiano will return to the school.

The two sides have agreed to a 8-year, $32 million deal with $25.2 million guaranteed, according to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic.

Schiano, 53, was the head coach at Rutgers from 2001 to 2011, going 68-67 and 5-1 in bowl games. Rutgers had their best season in 2006, going 11-2 and finishing the season ranked No. 12 in the country.

Schiano left Rutgers to become the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012, where he lasted just two seasons after a 11-21 record. Since then, he served as the defensive coordinator at Ohio State from 2016 to 2018 and briefly agreed to become the defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots in February of 2019 before resigning in March to spend more time on his "faith and family".

"The next great chapter for Rutgers Football is about to begin," school athletic director Pat Hobbs said in a statement Sunday. Rutgers board of governors has a meeting scheduled for 10 AM on Tuesday to approve the hire of Schiano.

Rutgers fired Chris Ash in September after going 8-32 in three-plus seasons. Nunzio Campanile has been the interim head coach since, while the team finished a 2-10 season (0-9 in the Big Ten) on Saturday.

Seton Hall's Myles Powell, along with every other player in college basketball, had his season cut short due to the coronavirus outbreak, but Powell could still be taking home some illustrious hardware.

On Tuesday, Powell was announced as one of five finalists for this year's Naismith Trophy, presented to the most outstanding men's college basketball player in the nation. 

Powell joins Kansas' Udoka Azubuike, Oregon's Payton Pritchard, Iowa's Luka Garza, and Dayton's Obi Toppin as finalists for one of the most prestigious trophies in college sports.

As St. John's prepared to play Creighton in the second round of the men's Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden, most other NCAA tournaments were being cancelled due to coronavirus. Despite what was going on elsewhere, St. John's and Creighton tipped off. But they didn't finish.

At halftime of a game that St. John's led, 38-35, the game and the remainder of the tournament were cancelled.

Before the cancellation, it was a strange scene at the Garden as the teams played in front of only team personnel and a limited amount of family members of the players.

With most conference tournaments now cancelled, the NCAA Tournament has now been cancelled as well.

The Big East Tournament tipped off Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, where St. John's won 75-62 over Georgetown in the opening round, closing the game on a 23-0 run.

Paced by LJ Figueroa's game-high 22 points and Marcellus Earlington's double-double on 19 points and 10 rebounds, the ninth-seeded Red Storm (17-15) prevailed past the eighth-seeded Hoyas (15-17).

As SJU surges into the quarterfinals against top-seeded Creighton (24-7), doing so without fans at MSG due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns, head coach Mike Anderson puts the 13-point triumph into perspective with SNY contributor Vin Parise.

Rutgers last made the NCAA Tournament in 1991, a streak which was expected to continue when the Scarlet Knights were picked to finish 12th in the Big 10 preseason polls.

But head coach Steve Pikiell, in his fourth season with Rutgers, has led his team to a 20-11 overall record, and an 11-9 record in the conference. They're seeded eighth in the conference tournament and are firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble. They'll face Michigan on Thursday with a chance to bolster their all-important resume.

"I really liked this team right from the beginning of the year," Pikiell said Monday on SNY's GEICO Sportsnite. "We had a few new players that we had to blend in, but we were very lucky.

"We went to Spain this summer. That gave us a great jump start on the season. We talked about guys sacrificing. We talked about playing hard. We talked about proving the people wrong that had picked us 12th [in the conference]. They went about doing it. They have a lot of special qualities. Everyone has helped us win games."

Seton Hall gave it their best effort, mounting a late comeback, but ultimately the No. 8 Pirates came up short against Villanova at Prudential Center, falling to the No. 14 Wildcats 79-77.

After the game, senior Myles Powell and head coach Kevin Willard discussed the tough loss, which came on the team's Senior Night.

"We're a team that's not going to give up. We fought until we see zeros on the clock," said Powell. "We still had a chance to win the game, but … I just wish it could have turned out a little better.

The XFL's opening weekend has been a successful one, and the New York Guardians can agree after their 23-3 win over the Tampa Bay Vipers at MetLife Stadium for their first win of the new season.

Takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Former Raiders QB Matt McGloin leads the Guardians' offense and he did a great job setting the tone early with a touchdown on the opening drive that he capped off with a fourth-down rush up the middle for a one-yard score. Overall, he finished his afternoon with a 15-for-29 line for 182 yards and one touchdown.

St. John's largest lead of 17 points disappeared in Sunday's 73-72 loss to Georgetown, and head coach Mike Anderson saw one common theme that contributed to the Red Storm's second-half collapse against the Hoyas.

After St. John's (13-10, 2-8 Big East) took a 38-29 lead over Georgetown (13-9, 3-6) into the locker room at Madison Square Garden, the Red Storm got sloppy. All 12 of St John's turnovers came in the second half, which gave the Hoyas chances down the stretch.

"You say you know you want to take care of the home court," Anderson said. "I thought, (in) the first half, we played pretty good basketball and we had zero turnovers. But if you said, 'Coach, what was the narrative of the game?' And you can see it -- we end up with 12 turnovers. They made some plays going down the stretch. Well, we didn't make those plays."

No. 25 Rutgers and Michigan faced off at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, in what probably felt like a home game for the New Jersey based Scarlet Knights, but that atmosphere wasn't enough, as the Wolverines walked away with a 69-63 win.

Despite it feeling like a home game, Rutgers might be thankful that it actually wasn't one -- considering the outcome. The Scarlet Knights are a perfect 15-0 at the RAC and are hoping to keep that record intact as they push for their first NCAA Tournament bid since 1991.

Saturday night's finish certainly did not help those chances -- Rutgers shot a poor 32.5 percent from the field and an even worse 25 percent from three-point range.

No. 10 Seton Hall got dealt a shocking ending to their weekend on Saturday, as Xavier came into the Prudential Center and upset the Pirates 74-62 on their home floor.

A big part of Xavier's game came on the boards, as the Musketeers outrebounded Seton Hall 51-22, including 14 offensive boards to the Pirates' five.

"We got down early, we started scrambling a little bit and when you scramble against good, big, physical teams, you're going to give up offensive rebounds," head coach Kevin Willard said after the game.

With Xavier ending Seton Hall's 10 game winning streak, the No. 10 Pirates should expect a drop down in the national rankings this upcoming week.

After the game, head coach Mike Anderson and guard Rasheem Dunn reacted to the 20-point loss, saying that the Red Storm simply didn't play up to their own expectations.

"One of the things that we always talk about is just trying to be consistent in how we play, and let's give Villanova some credit. They came out knocking some shots," said Anderson. "We got off to a pretty good start, and then of course I thought they settled it.

"Their experience, I think, showed."

The Sacred Heart Pioneers dominated on all cylinders during their 6-2 win over the Yale Bulldogs -- advancing to the inaugural Connecticut Ice championship game against Quinnipiac. 

"I think we have so much depth," Sacred Heart forward Jason Cotton said. "We have so many guys who aren't in the lineup, who bring so much to practice every day and, you know, we have so much depth upfront and in the back."

That depth has propelled Sacred Heart to becoming a first-place team in Atlantic Hockey for a majority of this season. Earlier this season, the Pioneers cracked the USCHO Top 20 poll for the first time in their history.

Sacred Heart scored four goals in the first period and went on to beat Yale 6-2 to advance to the Connecticut Ice final against Quinnipiac on Sunday.

Five things to know from Saturday's game

1) The first period belonged to the Pioneers, as Sacred Heart dominated the first 20 minutes. Sacred Heart put 13 shots on goal in the period, and four of them found the back of the net. Jason Cotton got things started with a power play tally, his 16th goal of the season. Two minutes later, Vito Bavaro scored his 15th of the year to double the lead. Later in the period, with Yale on the power play and looking to get back in the game, Matt Tugnutt scored a shorthanded goal, keeping all the momentum in the Pioneers' favor. Austin Magera then added another goal, making it a 4-0 lead at the first intermission.

You may not know how to pronounce Quinnipiac, but any college hockey fan knows the program has been a national powerhouse in the sport for a while.

The Bobcats are led by head coach Ran Pecknold, who has been at the helm for 26 seasons. Entering the year, Pecknold posted 511 career wins, the third most for active Division I coaches. Quinnipiac has had a winning season 21 out of the last 22 years, including Frozen Four berths in 2013 and '16.

Last season, Quinnipiac claimed its fourth Cleary Cup (ECAC Hockey regular-season championship) before falling 3-1 to Minnesota Duluth in the NCAA Tournament's Midwest Regional Final. The 26-10-2 overall record was driven by NCAA statistical goaltender champion Andrew Shortridge and Hobey Baker finalist Chase Priskie. Both have gone on to sign NHL contracts, respectively -- Shortridge with the San Jose Sharks and Priskie with the Carolina Hurricanes.

In 13 full seasons, Allain has coached Yale to a 235-159-42 record, six NCAA Tournament berths, and a national title in 2013 defeating Quinnipiac -- a team whose home ice is eight miles up the road from Yale's.

A new decade feels like a new beginning for this program. It hasn't been smooth sailing up to this point for Sacred Heart, which is the only Connecticut team to be nationally ranked this season.

The team started as a Division III program before the MAAC was formed as a Division I hockey conference. MAAC ice hockey folded after the 2002-03 season and the following season the remaining nine MAAC ice hockey programs formed Atlantic Hockey.

Woods had six bogeys and three birdies on Friday, four of those bogeys coming on the back nine. He managed par on his final four holes, but it wasn't enough to get him above the cut line.

A month after stepping down as the head coach at St. John's, Chris Mullin doesn't seem to have any regrets about the decision.

"I feel great. I felt pretty good straight through. Just decisions had to be made in my life. I feel good about the four years I coached at St. John's," Mullin said Thursday after participating in the T.J. Martell Foundation for Cancer Research's Second Annual New York Classic Fishing Tournament. "It's a special place to me. My kids go there. I met my wife there. So way beyond my four years playing there, my four years coaching, relationships - first and foremost with coach (Lou) Carnesecca, that's how I became part of St. John's. Met him when I was 10. He was my college coach, but way more than that. Things are well, life is good. Healthy, happy, and just kind of moving forward."
