While there is speculation that the team has hired a new quality control coach, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have yet to make a hire official. Pewter Report has learned via sources that the new quality control coach will be for the defensive side of the ball. The Bucs have retained Tim Berbenich as their assistant wide receivers coach and he fills the role of the offensive quality control coach.

The Bucs are believed to be hiring a defensive line coach and the defensive quality control assistant some time this week. Todd Wash left the Bucs after three years as the team's defensive line coach. Tampa Bay gave Wash an offer of a multi-year contract but he turned it down to sign a contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Wash had previously worked with Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley in Tampa Bay and in the college ranks. There were multiple reports that the Buccaneers offered the defensive line coach position to Vikings' defensive line coach Karl Dunbar. Dunbar decided to re-sign with Minnesota. 

Other than Wash, special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia left the team for the San Diego Chargers. Tampa Bay fired offensive line coach Pete Mangurian and hired Pat Morris to coach the offensive line. Linebackers coach Joe Baker, tight ends coach Alfredo Roberts, and running backs coach Steve Logan were re-signed by Tampa Bay.

    After reading Jon Grudens book "Do you love Football" he was a quality control coach for the 49ers so i know a litlle of what they do. They break down all the formations of the oppenent and plays and prepares them for the O or D Coordinator. He is pretty much the errand boy for coaches doing all the little stuff they don't have time for.

    How about Jef Fisher from Tenn Titans to work with the defense line coach! Could be a great fit! Tampa!

    I believe the QC coach does, among other things, a lot of film breakdown. He then prepares various reports addressing other teams tendencies, e.g. what plays are usually called in certain down& distance.

    I have to be missing something here? So we still don't have a Defensive Line Coach and half a quality control coach for defense? Does anybody know what a Quality Control Coach does?
