Revis Rips Greg Schiano, Says Bucs “Didn’t Like Coming To Work”


Darrelle Revis is doing a lot of talking this week.

After addressing Richard Sherman again, Revis turned his attention to his former head coach.  While speaking about Greg Schiano, Revis told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times Buccaneers players “didn’t like coming to work.”

“The atmosphere, I felt like, was real tense,” Revis said. “Guys didn’t like coming to work. That’s one of the things you have to have, a stress-free atmosphere and environment. You’re going to get everything out of everybody if it’s stress-free and let people be who they are. I just didn’t feel he did a very good job of that. It was a learning experience for him as well, and hopefully, if he ever gets another stab at it, he’ll do things differently.”

Revis wasn’t finished either.

During a break in Pro Bowl practices, Revis described Schiano as an unprepared head coach, who refused to listen to his veteran players.

“There’s a difference between being a head coach and in control of the whole team and the whole organization at the time,” Revis said. “Everybody’s got their own schemes and what they bring to the table.

“I wish he would have listened to some of the players a little bit more, especially the veterans and some of the older guys. We can go down the line like Dashon Goldson, Davin Joseph, Carl Nicks, Vincent Jackson and those type of guys and listen to them. But he was the boss, and you’ve got to fall in line.”
