The Buccaneers announced on Tuesday some new faces being added to their front office, while also promoting some familiar ones, including former linebacker Shelton Quarles.
The Buccaneers front office made some moves on Tuesday, but not with players, instead with promotions and some new faces within their own department.

Tuesday the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the promotions of Shelton Quarles, Mike Greenberg, Andre Forde and Tony Hardie. The Bucs also added Senior Personnel Advisor Scott Cohen and Scouting Assistant Steve West to their front office.
Quarles has been promoted to director of pro scouting after spending the previous three seasons working as the coordinator of pro scouting. In this role, he will oversee the Buccaneers' pro personnel staff, along with evaluation of all pro leagues, free agents and trade prospects. Quarles, who spent 10 seasons playing linebacker for the Buccaneers, including being a member of the 2002 Super Bowl winning squad., originally joined the team’s front office as a pro scout in 2007.

Greenberg has been elevated to director of football administration. Hired by Tampa Bay as a player personnel assistant in 2010, he spent the past two seasons as the coordinator of football administration. Greenberg works directly with general manager Mark Dominik on all aspects of the salary cap, contract negotiations and strategic planning.
One of the the new faces, Cohen, who has spent 21 seasons working in the NFL, comes to the Buccaneers from the New York Jets, where he spent the past five seasons working as the team’s Assistant General Manager.  In that post, he assisted general manager Mike Tannenbaum with the day-to-day operation of the team, focusing primarily on player personnel. He will handle evaluations and player acquisitions on both the professional and collegiate level for the Buccaneers, as well as preparing advanced reports for coaches.
Forde and Hardie will now be in charge of the northeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, respectively. West will assist in player scouting as well as in organizing player workouts.

    This is all kind of confusing to me. I just checked their official website and the Buccaneers need a freakin' org chart for their personnel. The org chart should be one big page so it is clear who answers to who. I was under the understanding that Stokes had the final say on evaluating college players, Quarles had the final say on evaluating pro players, Hickey had final say on the final say of these two and Dominik could overule anyone's final say and get who he wants on the team. This article says Cohen will handle evaluations and player acquisitions on both the professional and collegiate level. So is he beneath Stokes and Quarles or above them? The same goes for Butch Davis, above or below? Again, all professional organizations should have an org chart and I can't think of any reason it shouldn't be public.

    Glad to see quality being hired and promoting within.

    So glad to hear that Quarles has been promoted. And it does not hurt to beef up our scouting by bringing in those who have great experience with another NFL team. Some may question if the person from the Jets has done a good job there given how poorly that team played last year. However, the Jets also have gone a long way in the playoffs not that long ago, and perhaps those players were found by this Scout.
