Former Bucs offensive coordinator Jagodzinski lands in UFL
Jeff Jagodzinski is back in pro football.
The former Bucs offensive coordinator and Boston College coach, who was fired 10 days before the start of the 2009 NFL season, is the head coach of the Omaha franchise in the United Football League.
"We're going to be a tough, physical team,'' Jagodzinski told the Omaha Herald. "That's what you think of when you think of Nebraska people. We're going to be a downhill running football team, with heavy play-action. And we'll be high energy and high tempo. Or they won't be here.''
That was the same offensive system that Jagodzinski attempted to install in Tampa Bay. But the Bucs fired him just before the final preseason game, saying he struggled calling plays and that his passing game wasn't NFL-caliber.
The Bucs replaced Jagodzinski with quarterbacks coach Greg Olson, who attempted to keep much of the offense and terminology that Jags installed.
