Former NFL player Terry Cousin was recently named the Buccaneers director of player engagement and takes over the duties of Eric Vance. Cousin played 12 years in the NFL and was coached by Bucs head coach Greg Schiano while with the Chicago Bears.
PewterReport.com has learned the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made another addition to their staff earlier this month by hiring former NFL player and South Carolina director of player development Terry Cousin as the Buccaneers director of player engagement.

The Buccaneers confirmed the hire Thursday afternoon.

The hire was first reported by Gamecocksanatics.com on May 11 and included this quote from the athletic director Eric Hyman.

“Terry did a great job here,” athletics director Hyman said. “I’m happy for him, but I’m sorry for the athletic department. I think Terry has been absolutely terrific all the way across the board. He’s really, really been great to work with.”

Cousin spent 12 years in the NFL as a defensive back including time with the Chicago Bears where he was coached by Greg Schiano.

Tampa Bay did not disclose the duties of Cousin but it is expected his role will be similar to those held by former director of players relations Eric Vance. Vance helped facilitate and coordinate Buccaneers players in the numerous aspects of adjusting to being part of the NFL.

    Spot on with this write-up, I really think this website wants far more consideration. I’ll in all probability be once more to learn far more, thanks for that info.http://www.nikeemercurialvapor.com/

    You make more employed for the state in many cases rather than going into work for yourself. Either way, there is not much employment safety. http://www.jeremyscottsadidas.net/

    Where can I go to learn all that player engagement stuff?

    That's awesome QueDogg! Sure does seem like Schiano staff has some serious overhead in so many positions added now. Not sure what Schiano has on the Glazers, but between the $500,000 buyout to Rutgers the Glazers paid out of pocket, the $300,000 loan repayment to Rutgers for Schiano's house/mortgage, and now all these front office cats...??....that must have been some recommendation from Belichick. All well and good, if it works, inside 2 years.

    To bad Geno Hayes and Sean Jones aren't around so he could direct them to engage and tackle the man with the ball.

    I think should have negotiated the Bucs letting him keep the same job title he had with South Carolina. Director of Player Development sounds a heck of a lot better when trying to pick up women than Director of Player Engagement.

    I didn't know what he did so I looked it up. Player Engagement staff learned in-depth about topics such as critical thinking/problem solving, business negotiations, finance, building a marketing plan, relationship management, leading through influencing, and workplace compliance. This training will allow Directors of Player Engagement and League staff to more effectively contribute to the personal and professional development of athletes, work across all levels of their organizations, and meet the overall business goals of their organizations.

    Sounds like nepotism to me.

    Nice to hear that the Buc players will have someone to help them with their engagements and other wedding-related activities.... lol

    Although I like the hire, I wonder if there is there a limit to the number of FO employees on staff? With the collapse and off field issues of our roster, the more mentors the merrier.
