Schiano revitalized the Rutgers program, going 56-33 over the last seven years with a 5-1 mark in bowl games.
"Coach Schiano is a bright, meticulous teacher who knows how to get the most out of his players," Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said in the statement. "He built and ran a pro-style program at Rutgers, and he's a defensive-minded coach whose teams have always been characterized by toughness and a physical style of play."
Schiano was previously an assistant for the Chicago Bears.
The Buccaneers chose him over former Green Bay Packers coach Mike Sherman, who's under consideration for the Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator job.
The Buccaneers' coaching search included discussions with Marty Schottenheimer, Brad Childress, Rob Chudzinski, Jerry Gray, Tom Clements, Joe Philbin, Mike Zimmer and Wade Phillips canceled a scheduled interview.
Ravens Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice, a former Rutgers star, praised Schiano via Twitter: "Congrats to coach @GregSchiano the Bucs are getting a great man and a great coach. #salute."
