    Re: New Offense Coaches

    thanks and yes.
    I remember i saw a team (don't remember which one) they had coaches for like everything. If the coach thinks he needs it then he will get it. He can hire a asst. WR coach asst. offensive line coach, an asst. asst. rb's coach even a coach just for centers. he just gets a coach for what ever seems fit for one.

    Re: New Offense Coaches

    Okay I heard of a few of them Tice had on his list. So why would there be a problem with the two he's bringing in? With the money Wilf is willing to spend, and no limit on coach salaries, it doesn't seem unreasonable to have at least what Tice had, if not a couple more.

    Re: New Offense Coaches

    And now that I understand it a little better, I was right in saying it depends what they are going to do. The article doesn't say exactly what they are going to do for the O line. We'll just have to wait and see what that is.

    I also would like to know what they did at the college level.

    New Coaches Target Bucs Assistants
    By ROY CUMMINGS
    Published: Jan 8, 2006


    TAMPA - The new coach of the Minnesota Vikings may be looking to the
    Bucs to fill two of the vacancies on his staff.

    Brad Childress, who was named head coach of the Vikings on Friday, is
    believed to be considering Mike Tomlin for a spot on his coaching staff.
    Meanwhile, Bucs pro personnel executive Doug Williams is among a list of
    candidates Childress has been asked to consider for an executive-level
    position.

    The Fritz Pollard Alliance, an organization that promotes diversity and
    equality in the NFL, gave the Vikings a list of African-American
    candidates to consider for their vacant personnel director's position.
    Williams is among those listed.

    Tomlin is believed to be among a group of candidates being considered
    for the defensive coordinator's post. Others mentioned as candidates
    include Eagles linebackers coach Steve Spagnuolo and Eagles secondary
    coach Sean McDermott.

    Meanwhile, in Kansas City, there is talk that Herm Edwards may seek to
    hire Bucs defensive line coach Rod Marinelli as his defensive
    coordinator, should Edwards be named the Chiefs head coach.

    The Jets and Edwards cut ties last week and he's believed to be the
    leading candidate to replace Dick Vermeil in Kansas City.

    And then this is out there also....

    Star Tribune
    On the way?

    Childress refused to give any details about his coaching staff, but
    several names have surfaced.

    Darrell Bevell, who played under Childress at Wisconsin and has been the
    quarterbacks coach for the Green Bay Packers, appears to be a leading
    candidate to become the Vikings' offensive coordinator.

    Others mentioned include Eagles linebackers coach Steve Spagnuolo or
    secondary coach Sean McDermott, either one of whom could end up as
    defensive coordinator; and Lions offensive line coach Pat Morris, who
    would be considered for the same position.

    Nebraska defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove has been mentioned as a
    potential linebackers coach and Wisconsin special teams coach Brian
    Murphy as a potential special teams assistant. UCLA running backs coach
    Eric Bieniemy also could end up in Minnesota.

    Re: New Offense Coaches

    YES! I think Tomlin will make our secondary with the talent we have back there into a beast of a unit within about 2 years. There will be that grace period of a new system and a new way of defence, but I think he'll be great for us. I got excited watching the skins/bucs game yesterday and at that defense wondering if we could get that!

    Re: New Offense Coaches

    I posted this the on Friday in a new thread but it got moved and buried. So, here it is again for an FYI:


    That would be sweet if it becomes true that Mike Tomlin would be our "D" coordinator ... that means some sort of the "tampa two" and that would make me very happy.


    Looks like Miami wanted him last year pretty bad for the same position:

    Defensive Backs Coach Mike Tomlin to Miami?
    7:32 PM CST

    an original article by Michael Awi

    PewterReport.com is reporting that highly touted Defensive Backs coach Mike Tomlin may be on his way out. He is still working with the Buccaneer staff at the Senior Bowl, but has been rumored to have been offered the Defensive Coordinator job by the Miami Dolphins. Tomlin has said his hope is to be a Defensive Coordinator in the league in the future.

    "I think time will tell," Tomlin said. "We all have dreams and aspirations, and mine are those."

    "I can’t speak for everybody, but I do believe he’s got a tremendous amount of respect," Gruden said. "He’s a knowledgeable guy, and a real high-energy guy. He’s a great communicator. He’s consistent in that he’s always up. He’s a very optimistic, upbeat guy, but he’s very demanding and detail-oriented guy, too. He’s a superstar coach. He’s going to be one of the best. He’s got a great future and we’re very proud to have him on our staff. His talent is unlimited and we’re very fortunate to have him here."

    Tampa Bay has been talking to Tomlin in hopes to bring him back next season, but it is unknown how talks are going right now. But if Tomlin were to sign an extension with the Buccaneers, he would likely been denied any possibility of leaving before that contract would expire.

    If Tomlin is to leave for any other job, assistant Defensive Backs coach Raheem Morris is expected to take over as the Defensive Backs coach.

    --------------------------------------------------

    Kiffin gave him the stamp of approval, that's good enough for me:



    John Lynch was in Hawaii in February, 2001. Another Pro Bowl appearance for one of the league's most accomplished safeties.

    When Lynch's phone rang, it was defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin calling from the mainland. Good news, Kiffin said. The Bucs had found a defensive backs coach to replace recently departed Herm Edwards. A sharp guy, Kiffin said. Enthusiastic. Lots of great ideas.

    Then came a long pause.

    There's just one issue, Kiffin said.

    Mike Tomlin was 28. Lynch, at the time, was 29. He was now putting his career in the hands of a coach who was younger than he.

    "I thought, 'Whoa, this will be a little different,' " Lynch said. "But Mike called me five minutes later and was talking about all the things we could do. And when he got here, he did things his own way.

    "It doesn't matter how old you are or where you came from, people earn respect by knowing how to do their job. And he knew what he was doing."

    In two of the previous three seasons the pass defense had ranked second in the NFL. No matter, Tomlin said. The Bucs were going back to basics.

    E.D.D., he called it. Every Day Drills.

    The Bucs would focus on footwork. They would get back to fundamentals. Tomlin felt like there was room for improvement.

    "Some of the guys thought he was crazy," Lynch said. "You're out there thinking, 'We did these drills in high school.' "


    Two weeks ago the Bucs finished the regular season with the No. 1-ranked pass defense in the NFL.

    Tomlins contract is up after the playoffs for the buc's.

    I really like that fact that he made them go back to basics and re-focus on the fundamentals .... Perfectionist. Love it.
