New head coach Dirk Koetter’s staff is full.

The Buccaneers announced Monday that Brett Maxie will serve as their defensive backs coach next season.

According to a team press release, Maxie comes to Tampa Bay after spending the past two seasons at Vanderbilt, working as the secondary coach (2014) and cornerbacks coach (2015). Prior to his time at Vanderbilt, Maxie spent two seasons with the Tennessee Titans (2012-13), serving as the defensive backs coach.

Maxie worked with current Buc Alterraun Verner during his time with the Titans, helping the corner reach his first and only Pro Bowl in 2013.

Maxie also spent three seasons as the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive backs coach from 2008-11.

Prior to his coaching career, Maxie spent 13 seasons in the NFL as a player. While starting 104 of 153 games played, he compiled 588 tackles, 81 passes defensed, 23 interceptions (300 return yards, three touchdowns) and four sacks. He entered the league as a college free agent with the New Orleans Saints, where he played from 1985-93, before stints with the Atlanta Falcons (1994), Carolina Panthers (1995-96) and San Francisco 49ers (1997). Following the 1999 season Maxie began his coaching career with the Panthers, working as quality control/defensive backs coach (1998). He then worked with the 49ers as assistant defensive secondary coach (1999-2001) and defensive backs coach (2002-03) before joining the Falcons as the defensive backs coach (2004-06) and the Miami Dolphins as the secondary/safeties coach (2007).
