Pats Mangurian named Bucs OL coach



New England Patriots tight ends coach Pete Mangurian has been hired as the Bucs offensive line coach.

Mangurian, 53, replaces Bill Muir, who was fired last week after seven seasons.

Bucs coach Raheem Morris has plenty of history with Mangurian, who was the head coach at Cornell when Morris coached the secondary for the Big Red.

Mangurian was the offensive line coach for the Atlanta Falcons in 2002 before becoming their offensive coordinator a year later. With the Bucs, he will inherit the second-youngest offensive line in the NFL anchored by Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph.

Morris still has several positions left to fill on his coaching staff, including offensive coordinator, tight ends and secondary coach.
