Bucs hire Pitt OC Bob Bostad as offensive line coach



Bucs coach Greg Schiano has convinced a third assistant coach to leave a college program just months after taking a new job.

Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Bob Bostad, who joined the Panthers coaching staff in January, has been hired by the Bucs as their offensive line coach, the Times confirmed.

Bostad spent the last six seasons at the University of Wisconsin coaching tight ends, offensive line and serving as the Badgers run game coordinator.

Bostad is at least the third assistant coach to change course and leave a college program shortly after being hired to join the Bucs.

Defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan, who was hired by the Bucs Friday, left the Ohio State Buckeyes only a few months after being hired by Urban Meyer as a defensive assistant. Receivers coach P.J. Fleck, who agreed to become the offensive coordinator at Northern Illinois, left that job after one day to join the Bucs.

Bostad will work closely with Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, the former Giants quarterbacks coach who introduced by the team earlier this week.
