Ex-Chargers, Bucs assistant takes job at Auburn

When head coaches get fired, their assistants are left to their own devices.

But rather than wait for NFL jobs to get filled to try his luck, former Chargers special teams coach Rich Bisaccia just took a job at Auburn.

Bisaccia was named assistant head coach, running backs and special teams coach (and hopefully he got a salary for each title), according to Charles Goldberg of AL.com.

Bisaccia was the Buccaneers special teams coach from 2002-10, carrying an associate head coach title there as well.

He has some college experience, but guys with his kind of resume usually have chances to stay in the NFL if they want.

    Rich is one of the best special teams coaches out there. The fact remains, though, that he wants to move up the latter and become a head coach at either the D1 or NFL level some day and this is a way for him to show he can handle expanded responsibilities. As a Bucs and Tigers fan, I certainly hope he achieves everything he wants.

    Wish him the best of luck. He helped the Bolts ST get way better than it was the year before.

    I have been encouraging Lion’s fans about Rich. He is an awesome ST coach!

    Probably an indication Jon Gruden won’t be taking an NFL head coaching job this year. Also, Malzahn is putting together a great staff.

    Probably more money at Auburn than NFL teams can muster.
