Schiano Says He Wants Barber Back In 2013December 26th, 2012
The leader of the New Schiano Order did not flinch this afternoon when asked whether he wants Ronde Barber back for the 2013 season.
Greg Schiano praised Barber’s transition to safety and said Barber’s return was up to No. 20. Pressed further, Schiano made he it clear that he wants Barber on his football team next year and called Barber “the fabric of this organization.”
Schiano said Barber’s focused, game-by-game preparation is much like the head coach’s, so the topic of Barber’s return is not something he feels comfortable talking to Barber about until after the season ends.
Assuming Barber doesn’t get injured Sunday, as he did on the final game of 2011, Joe suspects Barber will make a quick decision.
