Lovie Smith has reached an agreement to become the next head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, sources told ESPN.

The former Chicago Bears coach will replace the ousted Greg Schiano on a four-year deal, according to sources.

Also...

 

According to multiple sources, Smith will bring in former Cal coach Jeff Tedford to be his offensive coordinator.

 

Don't know anything about Tedford (other than what I'm reading now). Anyone have any information on him?

Good hire for the Bucs.  Always been a big Lovie Smith fan.

 

As for Tedford, he's a passing type offensive coordinator. He runs a pro-style offense so don't expect any type of read option.   He's considered to be a very good OC so I think he will do just fine with the Bucs.

Tedford really did a good job of turning the CAL program around when he was hired there.

He did a good job of developing Rodgers so hopefully he can help Glennon continue to improve.

Still too early to say. We just drafted the guy so he probably has one more year to prove himself.
