The Buccaneers have found the man they want guiding quarterback Mike Glennon into his second NFL season.

Shortly after Lovie Smith got the head coaching job in Tampa, reports indicated that Southern Miss offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo would be the team’s quarterbacks coach. Arroyo confirmed that he’s heading to Tampa to work under offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford, who was also his boss for two years at the University of California.

“It came about rather quickly after getting a call from Lovie Smith and offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford last week, inquiring about my interest in coaching in the NFL. [Smith and I] talked about football and quarterback philosophy and his plan … basics, I guess,” Arroyo said, via the Hattiesburg American.

Arroyo spent one year at Southern Miss and the job with the Buccaneers will be his first in the NFL.

    Wow, we will have a good defense and a really bad offense. Just like the Bears were!

    Another poor staff choice by proven underachiever lovie (in a weak division lovie only made the playoffs 3 times in 9 yrs). Arroyo coming from a one win Southern Miss team. With the best running back, the best pass rusher, great young off tackle, leslie frazier, now bucs defensive coordinator, a very weak 21-32-1.

    The NFL need more underachievers who after 9 seasons have a 81-63 record with one Super Bowl appearance.

    What makes you think the offense would be bad? Tedford is an innovative offensive coach. Arroyo worked with him at Cal.
