Report: Buccaneers Set To Hire Former Rams And Kentucky Assistant For Their OC Position


NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport are reporting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have found their offensive coordinator.

Former Los Angeles Rams assistant Liam Coen and the Bucs are working out the contract details Friday morning per these reports.

Per Garafolo,

“The Buccaneers are working on a deal to hire Liam Coen as their new offensive coordinator, sources tell me and @RapSheet. After bouncing between the #Rams and Kentucky the last six years, Coen likely heads to Tampa for a possible reunion with pending free agent Baker Mayfield.”

Via Sports Illustrated,

“Like many great running teams, Kentucky uses the play-action to open their passing game. Kentucky’s offense frequently uses the run threat to sucker in second-level defenders, then capitalizes on an opened-up field with a well-timed pass.”
