The Bucs are interviewing Giants QBs coach Mike Sullivan for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Friday.

Sullivan's pedigree improved during Eli Manning's career season in 2011. The Giants' quarterbacks coach for the past two seasons, Sullivan spent the previous six years coaching Giants wide receivers. The Buccaneers have had trouble filling both of their coordinator jobs (offensive and defensive) this winter.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

he was previously their WR coach and I'd say they turned out ok as well.  Manning had a career year under him in 2011.  He's started out under Tressel at Youngstown State.

I'm on board. Doesn't hurt when you are the position coach for the Superbowl MVP.

I bet Freeman would be ecstatic.

Mike Sullivan is in his second season as the Giants’ quarterbacks coach after spending the previous six years coaching the team’s wide receivers.

Eli Manning had one of the best seasons of his career in his first year under Sullivan. He led the Giants to 10 victories while completing 339 of 539 passes (62.9 percent) for 4,002 yards, 31 touchdowns and 25 interceptions. The 339 completions and 62.9 completion percentage were both franchise single-season records. Manning’s 539 passes were the second-highest total of his career and were the fourth-highest total in Giants history. His 31 touchdown passes were the third-highest total in Giants history and the most by a Giants quarterback in 47 years. Y.A. Tittle threw 36 in 1963 and 33 in 1962. Manning’s 4,002 yards were the fifth-highest total in the NFL in 2010. He is the first Giants quarterback with two 4,000-yard seasons.

In 2009, Sullivan’s group of wide receivers caught 236 passes. Steve Smith shattered the franchise record with 107 catches and was the first Giants wideout to play in the Pro Bowl in 41 years. Smith’s receptions accounted for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns. Mario Manningham contributed 57 catches and Hakeem Nicks had 47 and six scores in an exceptional rookie season.

In 2008, Smith led the Giants with 57 receptions. Domenik Hixon, who had one career reception entering the season, had a team-high 596 receiving yards on 43 catches. Amani Toomer was second on the team with 48 receptions in his final Giants season. Toomer holds the franchise career records for catches (668), receiving yards (9,497), touchdown catches (54) and 100-yard games (22). In four seasons under Sullivan’s tutelage, Plaxico Burress had 344 catches, which place him 12th on the franchise’s career list, one catch ahead of Earnest Gray and three behind Aaron Thomas. Burress had 3,681 receiving yards and caught 33 touchdown passes for the Giants.

Burress caught 10 touchdown passes in 2006 and 12 the following year to become the first Giant since Del Shofner in 1961-62 to post back-to-back seasons with 10 or more scoring catches. He set a Giants postseason record with 11 receptions in the NFC Championship Game in Green Bay, one more than Ike Hilliard had in the 2000 Championship Game victory over Minnesota.

David Tyree, another of Sullivan’s players, made one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history when he improbably secured an Eli Manning pass against his helmet for a 32-yard gain on the Giants’ game-winning drive in Super Bowl XLII.

Sullivan was the Jacksonville Jaguars’ offensive assistant in 2003 after spending the previous season as Jacksonville’s defensive quality control coach under Tom Coughlin. He was the only member of Coughlin’s coaching staff retained by the Jaguars in 2003.

Sullivan joined the Jaguars after nine years coaching in college football. He began his coaching career at Humboldt State in 1993. He also coached at Army (1995-96 and 1999-2000), Youngstown State (1997-98) and Ohio University (2001). In 1997, Youngstown State won the Division 1-AA national championship under Jim Tressel, who later won a title at Ohio State. At Ohio University, Sullivan coached the defensive backs and tutored the kick blocking units on the special teams.

Sullivan was a defensive back at Army, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1989. He also has a master’s degree from Humboldt State. Sullivan is a graduate of the U.S. Army Airborne, Ranger and Air Assault schools.

Sullivan recently earned his Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Professor Louis Vintaloro at Perfomance Jiu-Jitsu Academy.

Sullivan and his wife, Julie, have two daughters, Carmen Enriqueta and Hope Carolyn. Sullivan was born in Santa Maria, Calif.

Thanks for posting.  That is exactly what Josh needs, especially throwing on the run.  Now I am excited.
