Greg Schiano involved in car accident, cyclist sent to hospital

Greg Schiano, defensive coordinator for the Ohio State Buckeyes was involved in a traffic collision with a cyclist earlier today near the Ohio State west campus at West Lane Ave. and Fred Taylor Drive. Schiano was uninjured, but the cyclist was taken to the hospital and Columbus police are handling the matter.

The victim was a 26-year-old male, who is in stable condition at the Wexner Medical Center at Ohio State University. Columbus police and fire divisions were called at 6:50 AM.

Schiano is in his first year with Ohio State and had not coached since being relieved of his duties by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the end of 2013. Urban Meyer, a personal friend of Schiano and head coach of the Buckeyes, brought him into the fold.

The incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts go out to the cyclist who was struck and wish him a speedy recovery.
