Wednesday evening during Buccaneers Total Access heard on 620 WDAE, special teams coach and associate head coach Rich Bisaccia made a guest appearance alongside NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, return man Clifton Smith.

Bisaccia talked about Smith and the Buccaneers special teams play lately. He also made a comment about possibly becoming an NFL head coach at some point in his coaching career.

"Everyone has goals, dreams, and ambitions in life," Bisaccia said. "I'd love to have the opportunity to get an interview or talk to someone about possibly being a head coach someday. I just don't feel that I want to go the offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator route to make that happen."

Biscaccia has been coaching the Bucs special teams for eight years, and has over 25 years of experience coaching at the college and pro levels.

"I love what I'm doing in the NFL, having the ability to coach all the guys and draw up the game plan each week," said Bisaccia. "It's exciting to me, and it probably will always be that way. Obviously we all have ambitions, we will see what happens, but if it doesn't, I'm perfectly happy with what I'm doing now."

Bisaccia helped develop one of the league's best kick returners in second-year player Clifton Smith. Smith is third in the NFL in average kick return yards with 30.6 yards per return, and is ninth in the NFL in average punt return yards with 9.9 yards per return.

Along with Smith, Bisaccia's special teams units have sent punter Josh Bidwell and former long snapper Dave Moore to the Pro Bowl in his tenure as special teams coordinator.
