Rutgers defensive line coach Jim Panagos will miss the season because he needs knee surgery.

Coach Greg Schiano disclosed the news Thursday, two days before the Scarlet Knights open their Big Ten season at Michigan State.

Schiano, who is starting his second stint at Rutgers, said Panagos has been in a lot of pain and decided to have his knee replaced. There was no word on when the surgery would happen.

“If there is a silver lining here, we have two guys who will be coaching the D-line that played in our system and understand our culture and both of them were trained by Jim,” Schiano said. “So certainly we lose something, but it’s as good a situation as a replacement plan as you could have, I think.”
