Bucs hire Roberts to coach tight ends



We've confirmed former Chiefs, Cowboys and University of Miami tight end Alfredo Roberts will be named the Bucs' new tight ends coach.

His addition will be among several staff moves the Bucs are expected to announce soon. Roberts replaces Bob Casullo, who departed after two seasons on the job.

Roberts most recently was the Browns' tight ends coach, charged with working with Kellen Winslow and others. Roberts was pushed out when Cleveland's new coaching staff took over last month.

Among the other moves the team is expected to announce is a change in job title for receivers coach Richard Mann. He apparently will have more influence as he now will be an assistant head coach, too.
