Bucs staff adds another Smith, Tedford

TAMPA — The father-and-son aspect of the new Bucs coaching staff — already in place with coach Lovie Smith's son Mikal on board as safeties coach — is going to another level.

Quinn Tedford, the younger son of offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford, and Miles Smith, the youngest of Lovie's three sons, will be Bucs coaching interns, the team confirmed Thursday night.

Tedford was a backup quarterback on his father's Cal teams from 2008-11, playing in four games. Last season he was an offensive quality-control coach at Cal-Davis, where several Cal assistants coached after Jeff Tedford was fired at Cal. Two others — Ben Steele and Matt Wiegand — are also on the Bucs staff.

Miles Smith, who was in Mobile, Ala., at the Senior Bowl this week with brothers Mikal and Matt (who is Lovie's agent), will work on the defensive side, while Tedford will be on offense.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Rookie INF Daniel Robertson has earned raves for his defensive play at both second base and shortstop, making a highlight play almost every game he starts, including one in the fifth inning Friday.

  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Friday's Rays-Twins game

    RF Steven Souza is always, shall we say, entertaining. In the second, he made an impressive running, leaping catch. In the seventh, he made either the worst dive for a ball a good 15 feet away or was trying for the best deke. In the eighth, he hit a massive homer.
