Schiano back in Tampa after family emergency

The SportsXchange

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said Monday he did not fly back with the team on Sunday night because he was tending to his ill father.

Schiano stayed in the Boston area to be with his father, who became ill during the Buccaneers' 23-3 loss to the New England Patriots. He remained there until other family members arrived.

He said tests were still being taken on his father.

Schiano returned to work at the team's facility on Monday morning.

The 0-3 Buccaneers host the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.
