Township Playing a Rezoning Scheme?
Few coaches will ever get the mileage out of a 7-5 season like Rutgers coach Greg Schiano. Piscataway officials unanimously approved a controversial zoning change to a former Rutgers University ecological tract, which the university plans to sell to Schiano in an unusual deal. Schiano, who became coach in 2001 and guided the Scarlet Knights to their first winning season in 13 years, plans to build a house large enough to host events with his players and potential recruits. Schiano was not at the meeting, but plenty of opponents were. "Rutgers had no right to do that," Sue Kozel, a former spokesperson for Friends of the Rutgers Ecological Preserve, told the Home News Tribune. "It's clear this thing was hot-wired with Piscataway officials for awhile." Thanks to Ben Maller for this!
