University of South Florida coach Skip Holtz was 1-1 against Rutgers when Greg Schiano was the Scarlet Knights’ coach. Now Holtz and Schiano, hired Thursday as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, share the same town.

Holtz, during a break in recruiting with National Signing Day looming on Wednesday, sent along some well-wishes after hearing the Schiano/Bucs news.

“I’m excited for Greg and his family,’’ Holtz said in a statement released by USF. “We’ve gotten to know each other over the past few seasons. He’s a great person and a tremendous coach. We’ve had some great battles and I respect the effort and discipline his teams have played with. He’s a defensive coach with NFL experience, and I think he has a great opportunity to be successful with the Bucs. We are fans of coach Schiano and the Bucs organization and we wish them both great success.’‘
