On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms with two former NFL players to add to the coaching staff.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins receiver Antwaan Randle El has joined Tampa Bay’s staff as an offensive assistant. Randle El spent 8 years in the league and was part of Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl XL championship team in 2005, notably throwing a touchdown pass to game MVP Hines Ward. Current Bucs head coach Bruce Arians was Randle El’s wide receivers coach in Pittsburgh from 2004-2005 and offensive coordinator when he returned to the Steelers in 2010 after a stint with the Redskins.
On the other side of the football, former Bucs safety Cody Grimm will be a defensive/special teams assistant. Grimm spent 3 seasons in Tampa Bay from 2010-2012. His best season came in 2010 when he played in 11 games and started nine. He had 43 total tackles that season and 14 assists, while adding two interceptions one of which was a touchdown.
These will be the first NFL coaching jobs for both Randle El and Grimm.
