Greg Schiano served as an assistant and defensive backs coach at Penn. State University in the early 1990s. He worked under the then defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Sandusky was convicted in 2011 of multiple counts of sexual abuse of young boys.

According to court papers, a former assistant testified that Schiano knew about Sandusky's behavior.

Schiano denied seeing or suspected any abuse.

But his connection to Sandusky is a big part of the conversation on social media in Knoxville and on the University of Tennessee campus.
