Greg Schiano is slowly but surely assembling his coaching staff, with two more coaches coming for the defensive side of the ball.
Bill Sheridan, who just weeks ago accepted a job on the Ohio State coaching staff, is leaving to become the Buccaneers’ defensive coordinator, according to Ohio State’s campus newspaper. Sheridan is a former Giants defensive coordinator and Dolphins linebackers coach.
And Bryan Cox, the former NFL linebacker, is expected to become a defensive assistant in Tampa Bay, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Cox spent 12 years in the NFL and was, like Sheridan, most recently on the Dolphins’ staff.
As the last team to hire its head coach, the Bucs were behind the curve in getting a staff together. But Schiano (who is also bringing aboard some of his former Rutgers assistants) is getting close to having his staff assembled.
