Super Bowl champs to hire Greg Schiano as DC

(CBS) -- The New England Patriots are hiring a polarizing name for many in East Tennessee.

Sources tell CBS Sports the team will name Greg Schiano as its new defensive coordinator. Schiano worked previously as the defensive coordinator at Ohio State, and has experience as a head coach in both college and the NFL.

In Tennessee, former Athletics Director John Currie attempted to hire Schiano to replace former coach Butch Jones, but the university backed off after a torrent of social media outrage.
