Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said Monday that he did not return to Florida with the team Sunday because his father took ill during the game against the New England Patriots.

Schiano said he stayed with his father until other family members were able to arrive and he then returned to Tampa late Sunday.

Schiano said doctors were still performing tests on his father.

The Buccaneers fell to 0-3 with Sunday's 23-3 loss to the Patriots. Buccaneers reporter Pat Yasinskas contributed to this report.
