Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Highlighting the "Other" Coaches
It is unusual for the "other" coaches on an NFL team's staff to get a fraction of the recognition and notoriety that the head coaches, offensive coordinators, and defensive coordinators do.
After writing a profile on the aforementioned three positions, I decided that the rest of the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers coaching staff deserves to be known about and recognized.
Enjoy getting to know the rest of the Bucs' new coaching staff members.
