Ben McDaniels, recently hired as Columbia’s offensive coordinator, will join Bucs coach Greg Schiano’s coaching staff, possibly as quarterbacks coach.
Columbia announced the move on Thursday via its website, indicating only that McDaniels would become an offensive assistant in Tampa Bay.
The Bucs have not announced the hiring of a quarterbacks coach but were expected to make a hire this week.
McDaniels, the younger brother of Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, served as his brother’s quarterbacks coach in Denver.
Also headed to the Bucs: Rutgers special teams coordinator Phil Galiano and grad assistant Andrew Janocko. The members of Schiano’s Rutgers staff will be the assistant special teams coach and offensive quality control coach, respectively.
UPDATE: We've learned McDaniels will NOT be the Bucs' quarterbacks coach, though he is joining the staff.
