Schiano remained with ill father until family members could get to Boston



Bucs coach Greg Schiano did not travel with the team from New England to remain with his father, Barry, who became ill during Tampa Bay's 23-3 loss to the Patriots.

Schiano said he flew home to Tampa Sunday night once family members could arrive in Boston.

"During the game, my dad became ill and I thought it was necessary to stay back with him until some other family members could get up to Boston,'' Schiano said. "I traveled in the middle of the night last night to get back and take care of business here. So he's still in Boston.''

When asked about his father's condition, Schiano said, "They're doing tests and stuff.''
