Greg Schiano might just have his new coaching staff filled out in time for the scouting combine this coming week.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Bob Bostad to be the offensive line coach, according to Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com.
Bostad comes from Pitt where he just landed after leaving Wisconsin to follow Paul Chryst, the new Panthers’ head coach. Three of Bostad’s linemen were drafted last April, including tackle Gabe Carimi, a first-round pick of the Chicago Bears.
Bostad had been rumored to be headed to the Bears to work under Mike Tice but he ended up leaving Pitt after a very short stay to go to the Bucs. Bostad will work under Mike Sullivan, who was hired as offensive coordinator after serving as the quarterbacks coach of the New York Giants.
The Bucs announced they hired Bill Sheridan as defensive coordinator on Friday.
