Just days after Tampa Bay’s 31-9 victory over Kansas City in Super Bowl LV, the Buccaneers are expected to lose their first assistant coach to another team. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell will be hiring offensive assistant Antwaan Randle El to be the Lions wide receivers coach.

Randle El joined Arians’ staff in Tampa Bay in 2019 and played wide receiver in Pittsburgh from 2002-05 and in 2010 for head coach Bruce Arians when he was the Steelers offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach. Randle El worked with Bucs wide receivers coach Kevin Garver over the past two seasons.

That sucks. I mean that’s the point of being an assistant so that you can get started and then move up, just too bad we couldn’t find a spot for him to stay here.

I know it’s not a major position coach loss but you know he had a good rapport with the players and it sucks to lose any kind of chemistry on the coaching staff.

Also, to be that guy, how much coaching of three all pros is needed? Maybe helping younger guys with form and footwork?

I wonder if he made an impact on Scotty Miller

Well, how did Scotty Miller’s progress last season looked to you?

I read somewhere else that Brady is already talking with Admin about restructuring and extending his contract? Probably to help free up money to sign people?

He did it almost every few years with New England.

Good for him. He worked hard and deserves a break.

This is the downside to winning. I’m happy for the guy but at the same time I selfishly wish we could keep everyone on board. Hopefully Bowles doesn’t get any HC interest

Awesome for him, that is good news. Other teams want what we have–it is a copy cat league

But how are they going to get a group that consists of Evans, Godwin, AB, and Miller. That doesn’t include the TE’s in Gronk, Brate, and OJ.
You can have the correct system, but you still need talent. Case in point, we spent five years with Winston and failed in four years (we had a 9-6 season). Brady came in on one season and we win the Super Bowl. Of course, Brady brought along with him Gronk, AB, and Fournette.
