Breaking down Greg Schiano's coaching staff with the Bucs



It was a long process, but new Bucs head coach Greg Schiano has finally completed his coaching staff.

It's comprised of college and NFL coaches, many of whom have been head coaches or coordinators at some level.

Start with Butch Davis, the special assistant to Schiano, who has head coaching experience with the Miami Hurricanes, Cleveland Browns and North Carolina Tar Heels and was the Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator. Ron Cooper, the former defensive backs coach at Louisiana State, was a head coach at Eastern Michigan, Louisville and Alabama A&M.

Including Schiano, the Bucs coaching staff has five former head coaches, five former defensive  coordinators and five former offensive coordinators. That list doesn't include receivers coach P.J. Fleck, who was hired as offensive coordinator at Northern Illinois before leaving after one day to take the job in Tampa Bay. Tem Lukabu was named defensive coordinator at  Fordham and Bob Bostad was named offensive coordinator at Pittsburgh this year before taking their respective jobs with the Bucs.
