Found October 13, 2013 on The Bay Cave:
Bucs head coach Greg Schiano is really creating a firestorm in Tampa. From getting rid of players that don’t fit his liking to MRSA to the Josh Freeman drama, Schiano is in a bad light. A very bad light.  According to a USA Today story, the player’s union (NFLPA) believes Schiano is the man behind the leaks that Josh Freeman is in the NFL’s drug program. In correspondence obtained Saturday by USA TODAY Sports, the union says it has no confidence in the NFL’s separate investigation, in part because the union is unaware of any previous league investigation into a confidentiality breach that has yielded discipline. And the NFLPA contends it has information the original breach occurred when Schiano discussed Freeman’s status in the league’s substance-abuse program with other Buccaneers players, prior to the quarterback’s Oct. 3 release. This sounds like the NFLPA has definitive, concrete evidence that the Buccaneers head coach is the man behind the information that has been leaked. If they can prove it, Schiano will have a tough time explaining himself. He may also have a tough time staying the head coach.
