New Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris has completed his coaching staff for the 2009 season. The Bucs announced their roster of coaches on Wednesday. A few new coaches were announced and other coaches had their roles with the team clarified.
The recently hired Steve Logan will serve as the team's running backs coach. Logan served under offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski at Boston College. He was Jagodzinski's offensive coordinator the past two seasons. Logan has head coaching experience at Eastern Carolina from 1992-2002. He is the university's all-time leader in wins with a 69-58 record, and five appearances in bowl games.
With Logan as the running backs coach, former running backs coach Richard Bisaccia had his title changed to associate head coach/special teams coordinator. Tim Berbenich will stay on the Bucs' coaching staff as the assistant running backs coach.
Also, wide receivers coach Richard Mann had his title changed to assistant head coach/wide receivers. Mann has been on the Bucs staff since former head coach Jon Gruden formed his staff in the 2002 season.
Alfredo Roberts was hired as the team's tight ends coach. He spent the last two seasons in that role with the Cleveland Browns after four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars (2003-2006).
Offensive line coach Pete Mangurian will have Chris Mosley serve as an assistant offensive line coach. Mosley served as tight ends coach at Princeton University last season, and worked for Jagodzinksi at Boston College as an assistant offensive line coach in the 2007 season.
Another interesting move was the team bringing back Ejiro Evero as defensive quality control coach. Evero was fired from that position on January 18. Last season, Evero worked closely with Morris, assisting him with coaching the defensive backs.
