PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Rutgers coach Greg Schiano will stay with the school he led to national prominence this season, rather than return to take over the troubled Miami program.

"This is where I want to be. This is the job I want to have," Schiano said Monday.

Schiano, who was Miami's defensive coordinator in 1999 and 2000, said he spoke with the Hurricanes' athletic director Sunday night.

"We're just scratching the surface here at Rutgers," Schiano said. "The sky's the limit. We're going to do great things here. We haven't done it yet."

Schiano has orchestrated No. 16 Rutgers' rise from one of the nation's lowliest programs in the past six seasons. At 10-2 (5-2 Big East), the Scarlet Knights are heading to a Texas Bowl matchup against Kansas State.

Rutgers narrowly missed the Bowl Championship Series by losing Saturday night in triple overtime at West Virginia.

Last year, Schiano led Rutgers to its first winning season (7-5) since 1992, and its first bowl berth since 1978.
