Schnellenberger is in the final year of his contract with FAU and said often in recent months that he was not planning to evaluate his coaching future after 2011. Schnellenberger is 157-140-3 as a collegiate head coach. He will be with the Owls for the entire 2011 season, including any possible bowl game.
