Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired Ron Cooper as defensive backs coach.


Yes, that's right, the man who coached Morris Claiborne has been hired as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers new defensive backs coach, the Tampa Bay Times confirms. This will undoubtedly give the Bucs a voice in their building that is well in favor of drafting Claiborne.

Cooper has built an impressive resume at LSU, coaching both Morris Claiborne (Thrope Award) and Tyrann Mathieu (Bednarik Award) to nationally recognized award winning seasons in 2011. The year before, Patrick Peterson claimed both awards and the SEC defensive player of the year award.

In Coopers first year as the LSU defensive backs coach, Peterson earned second team All-American honors and safety Chad Jones was taken in the 3rd round of the NFL draft.

Cooper has previously worked coaching at South Carolina, where he coached Safeties, Linebackers, and was even the teams special teams coordinator in 2005, and its Assistant Head Coach in 2006 and 2007.
