He also has a coaching record of 122-88. At a huge rock on campus where students often paint various messages, the words "Schiano covered up child rape at Penn State" appeared. That list includes Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy, Duke coach David Cutcliffe, North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren, Purdue coach Jeff Brohm and recently-fired Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin.
