The Buccaneers have added one more piece to their coaching staff, announcing Saturday that George Warhop would be their new offensive line coach, taking over for Bob Bostad.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they have named George Warhop offensive line coach.
Warhop joins the Buccaneers after five seasons with Cleveland (2009-13) as the offensive line coach. While with the Browns, Warhop coached tackle Joe Thomas to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro team each season. Warhop also helped center Alex Mack to an all-rookie selection in 2009, while also earning a 2010 Pro Bowl berth.
Prior to joining Cleveland, Warhop spent four seasons with San Francisco (2005-08), helping running Frank Gore record three-consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, including a franchise-record 1,695 in 2006. Warhop joined the 49ers after two seasons with Dallas (2003-04), where he helped tackle Flozell Adams and guard Larry Allen earn Pro Bowl berths each year.
Warhop got his start in the NFL as an assistant offensive line coach with St. Louis (1996-97) before becoming the offensive line coach in Arizona (1998-2002). Before entering the NFL, Warhop spent 11 seasons as a collegiate coach at Kansas (1984-86), Vanderbilt (1987-89), New Mexico (1990-91), Southern Methodist (1993) and Boston College (1994-95). Warhop also spent two seasons as a coach for the London Monarchs in NFL Europe (1991-92).
A center at the University of Cincinnati, Warhop got his start in coaching as a student assistant at his alma mater in 1983.

    I'm thinking Warhop and Tedford May end up impressed with Glennon's work ethic in getting Tedford's playbook early enough to get a good feel for the upcoming O-line blocking schemes and rhythm. Just hope he hits the weight room as well. He's impressed Lovie already("He looked me in the eye and said coach I don't know what the rules are. But, when can we get started?") Sounds like a guy who's serious about wanting to remain the starting QB.

    My grandmother could have coached most of those guys to All Pro. I was always concerned when I saw a resume with job changes every 1-2 years.//// I hope all these coaches succeed . We deserve coaches who have been there , done that when it comes to winning at this level. I hope he can get our former Pro Bowl offensive linemen there again. //// It would be so nice to see the Buc's defense a top 5 again. Then our QB doesn't have to be a super star. Brad Johnson wasn't. Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, John Lynch and Rhonde Barber were.

    The Bucs have been spot on in every coaching selection this year. They are judicious in carefully selecting the GM (& thankfully, it won't be Dom Owlykat!). Even if the GM's duties are more as a capologist than player selection, the excellent coaching staff the Bucs have put together can clearly recognize & decide who are the best players.

    Nice!! This staff is stellar. I hope it translates well to the field. Players have to be impressed and excited about the upcoming season under this coaching staff. Go Bucs!!

    Owlykat: As much as I enjoy reading your opinions; the only one I seem to remember is that one where you keep bringing up the name Tebo(w). Unfortunately, that one diminishes the credibility of your offerings.

    and I might add why anyone would consider Dominik as a quality GM clearly has given the guy far more credit than he deserves. This fascination with nice guys like McKay and Dominik being great Gms is absurd. The best thing the Bucs did was including Dominik in their house cleaning.

    Another very NFL Experienced Asst. Coach hired by Lovie. This one is perhaps the most critical given the way our OL badly underachieved in 2013. It is also great that he can help Tedford to adjust to the NFL. Now if we can just land a good GM, (please rehire DOM) we should be in good shape. I think also that both our OC and our DC are both huge improvements over Schiano and his inept coaches. Tedford made it clear it is important to have at least two good RBs and use both of them and he was critical of Schiano just putting all the carries on Duggie. You will remember I had a fit about Schiano running Duggie into the ground the first year. I also loved Frazier giving a very candid evaluation of what players will fit the Tampa 2 and who doesn't measure up. He criticized Foster's lack of ability to cover pass receivers and you remember my warning he should be moved to strong side LB at the start of this season and our WVa. MLB who showed the ability to cover wide receivers in the Redskin's Preseason game where he was named most valuable player in the game should take over at MLB. Of course stupid Schiano not only left Foster in the middle but cut the MLB I recommended. Foster now needs to be moved to SLB and Frazier needs to get the WVa. LB back. And Frazier also pointed out how bad our 2d round pick tackled at CB. He should not have been the starter because Johnson outplayed him all year long. Our second round pick should only play nickel CB!

    Very impressive resume.

    Don't know that much about him but if you guys say Parcells brought him to Dallas then he should be a good hire. Excited about this staff, a great job by Lovie!

    I agree Garv. While Warhop looks like he's been around a bit, he's been hired by good coaches and has had success wherever he's been. It was Bill Parcells that brought him on in Dallas. Warhop had the Browns O-Line ranked at #5 by PFF in 2012 and PFF has them ranked at #5 again in 2013. I think this is an experienced hire with solid results. He coached Alex Mack, the #1 Center in FA, at the Browns as did Tedford at Cal. Maybe between the two of them we could get Mack in Pewter and Red! Go Bucs!

    Very qualified guy, worth waiting for. Yet another good hire IMO.
