The Bucs have finalized their 2015 coaching staff with the addition of Paul Spicer who will serve as the team’s assistant defensive line coach. Spicer replaces Mike Phair who left earlier this year to become co-defensive coordinator.
Spicer played 12 seasons in the NFL, mostly for the Jacksonville Jaguars (2000-2008) and collected 28.5 sacks to go along with 252 tackles and six forced fumbles. After retiring in 2011, Spicer joined the coaching ranks, working with current Bucs defensive line coach Joe Cullen in Jacksonville (2011-2012).
The Bucs have no current vacancies on their staff after adding Dirk Koetter as offensive coordinator, Mike Bajakian to serve as the quarterback coach, Andrew Weidinger as assistant offensive line coach and now Spicer to assist the defensive line.
