TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

It's not officially in his playbook, but teaching up and coming NFL stars about becoming one with their community is extremely important to Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano.

“There are 1696 men who get to play in the NFL on active roster. I mean think about it of all the people in the world - how blessed are you and whether it's here during the season or wherever you do call home in the off season, get involved," Schiano said. "Where ever you are be there."

As part of bringing players up the ranks, Schiano has created special rookie programs to help players become part of their community.

“We do a lot of rookie programs as a team and I think what once you experience that - that when you're serving other you really get so much back in return,” Schiano said.

While serious on the sidelines, Schiano has a softer side when talking about his faith and the love he has for his wife and four children.

“When I’m not here coaching, I just like spending time with my family, and hanging out, that’s what makes me happy,” Schiano said.

Schiano talked about his struggles at the beginning of the season, how much he enjoys Tampa Bay community and his coaching ideas in this one-on-one interview Tuesday.
