The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired former Buffalo Bills quarterback coach and interim offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt as their quarterback coach for the 2010 season, according to a source.

Van Pelt will get a chance to develop Bucs Josh Freeman as he enters his second season.

Van Pelt was a Bills quarterback from 1994 through 2003 and joined the coaching staff as a quality control coach in 2006 and 2007. He was promoted to quarterback coach in 2008 and replaced Turk Schonert as offensive coordinator before the start of the 2009 season.

The Bills were 30th out of 32 NFL teams with an average of 273.9 yards per game. They were 28th in the NFL in points per game, at 16.1.

Vab Pelt's bio from the Bills website - Promoted to quarterbacks coach in January 2008… assisted in the development of second-year quarterback Trent Edwards in 2008… Edwards’ accomplishments include posting a 65.5 completion percentage to rank sixth in the NFL as well as ranking second all-time for a single season in Bills history...

Don't know much about him but dosn't seem like the worst choice....

Who exactly did he have to develop in Buffalo?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Unfortunately guys with more experience than Freeman.  The lack of name recognition only emphasizes my point:  that he didn't develop anyone.

Maybe Edwards and Losman just suck. Are you going to hold it against Gruden for not being able to develop Simms, Gradkowski, Rattay, and McCown? Maybe they just suck, too.

I tend to think Edwards and Losman just sucked, what really have they done? Don't think it's been coaching for those guys

I think this is a very good hire. I've always liked Van Pelt.

I dont know, probably. Don't organizations in that situation usually get rid of the player instead of the coach?

And yes, I do hold that against Gruden.  That's his job and was supposedly his forte.
