The coordinators with the worst talent to work with are now gone...scapegoats?Still, our return game was pretty anemic last year.

Yeah, well my least favorite hire this year has been Tony Oden. The guy has had a terrible history so far at coaching DBs and I'm starting to wonder why we even bothered 'letting' Ron Cooper coach at USF(firing him). We let go of someone because the unit they were coaching was the 32nd ranked pass defense then but brought in a guy who coached the 29th ranked pass defense. The difference of which is almost nullified by the combination of the Talib trade and the Wright suspension. So that move is mind boggling, especially when you take into account the guys Cooper has developed at LSU(Peterson, Claiborne, Reed, Mathieu). However, I'm going to trust Schiano knows what he is doing but its mind boggling to me nonetheless.
First, Bucs wide receivers coach P.J. Fleck moved on to become the youngest head coach in major college football, then quarterbacks coach Ron Turner was encouraged to leave by Butch Davis and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan jumped at a chance to leave Tampa before secondary coach Ron Cooper dove back into the college ranks. Now, Greg Schiano has dropped his axe on special teams coach Bob Ligashesky, despite Ligashesky’s Super Bowl ring (Pittsburgh) and the Bucs leading the NFL in blocked punts, per a Tweet by Tampa Bay Times beat writer Rick Stroud.Yes, the Bucs special teams were not strong, but that definitely was, in part, because the Bucs had subpar returners throughout the season. The kicking game was sound, and surely special teams was not a problem.But Joe can say that Schiano is obsessive about special teams, and it does not surprise Joe if Schiano thought he could do better.http://www.joebucsfan.com/?p=82579
Rick Stroud @NFLSTROUDBucs have fired special teams coach Bob Ligashesky after one season.Schiano was real serious about evaluating all aspects of the team. Firing Ligashesky this late in the process tells me Schiano already has his replacement in mind and lined up
Great - more college coaching influence. That's all the Bucs need.
It's ST ...who cares ?? Doesn't exactly take a rocket scientist to draw this up....
Note, Ferraro was DC at Rutgers for Schiano from 2001 to 2004. Hmmmmmmmm
