Do It For The Love: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Agree to Terms with Head Coach Lovie Smith

January 2, 2014 0


This past Monday was a dark day for many NFL franchises and the Tampa Bay Bucs seemed to be one of those teams with a black cloud floating over them. Oh how a few days can change everything.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith to replace now former head coach Greg Schiano. The deal is for four years at some where around $5 million a season. The defensive minded Lovie Smith is inheriting a solid young defense that includes the likes of Darrelle Revis, Mark Barron, Gerald McCoy and Dashon Goldson. The (4-12) Buccaneers started the 2013 NFL (0-8)  and although some games were close, lack of discipline and mental disarray seemed to haunt them all year long. Lovie is expected to change all of that.

Lovie plans on bring over an entirely new coaching staff. Current Dallas Cowboys defensive line coach Rod Marinelli will join Lovie as the Bucs’ new defensive coordinator. Lovie will also switch up things on the offensive side of the ball as former California Golden Bears head coach Jeff Tedford will run the offense.
