The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are adding experience to help Greg Schiano

I've got a ridiculous amount of Schiano pictures from his press conference - but none of Butch Davis or Mike Sullivan. 'Sup, AP and Getty?

When Raheem Morris became the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009 he was inexperienced - his most recent experience came as a position coach. The Bucs tried to surround him with experience, hiring two former head coaches as coordinators. Those two head coaches were fired before the end of the year, and that once again left an inexperienced Morris alone at the head of a football team. Things didn't end well.

The Bucs are trying to do the same thing with Greg Schiano, but it feels different this time. Schiano has a decade of experience as a head coach (albeit at the college level) and presumably has a heavy hand in these hirings. More importantly perhaps, the Bucs have added experience to assist the coordinators, too. Butch Davis will be able to help the new defensive coordinator (by doing everything but coaching) as well as Schiano. Veteran offensive coach Jimmy Raye II will likely help Mike Sullivan install his offense. It seems very unlikely the season will end with two fired coordinators this time around.
