Bucs Finish Up Coaching Staff…For Now

With the Senior Bowl just around the corner, the Bucs have finished hiring coaches to go into the game with a full staff. They did this during the past few days by hiring Larry Coyer to be the Defensive Line coach and Assistant Head Coach, pretty much filling the same role as Marinelli two years ago. Then they followed that up with hiring Bob Casullo as their Tight Ends coach.

Both coaches bring strong coaching skills and experience to these positions. Both coaches are well regarded and proven in the NFL. We should see some solid development form the Defensive Line, and we'll see if Alex Smith develops more under Casullo than he did under Middleton.

I don't expect this to be the last changes in the coaching staff. I expect more changes will occur after the Senior Bowl. If there's not some change at the OL coaching spot, I'd be shocked. There needs to be a change there. So stay tuned.
