The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were extremely busy during the offseason. They fired Raheem Morris after he lost total control of his team last season. The Buccaneers lost their final 10-games by an average of 18.5 points.
Tampa Bay hired Greg Schiano as their ninth head coach in franchise history. He was the head coach at the University of Rutgers for the past 11 seasons. He helped turn their program around and Rutgers quickly became one of the better teams in the Big East. Rutgers has competed in seven bowl games in their 140-year history. Schiano coached six of those seven bowl games, and went 5-1 in bowl games.
He was a defensive assistant for the Chicago Bears from 1996-1997. He was named the defensive backs coach for the Bears in 1998, before leaving to take over as the defensive coordinator for The University of Miami in 1999. Miami ranked in the top-15 in total defense during both seasons under Schiano.
