Mike Sullivan is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator

As first reported by Adam Schefter and now confirmed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan is now the Bucs new offensive coordinator. Mike Sullivan has spent the past two seasons as the New York Giants' quarterbacks coach, helping Eli Manning attain new heights and winning his second Super Bowl Ring this season.

Sullivan coached New York's wide receivers in the six years prior to his elevation to quarterbacks coach, coaching players like Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham and Plaxico Burress. Having spent most of his professional career under Kevin Gilbride and Tom Coughlin, Sullivan will likely bring a balanced but aggressive offense to the NFL. The Giants' offense is predicated on a balanced attack, but they're not afraid to pull the trigger and take shots down the field. Gilbride's offense is based vaguely on the old run-and-shoot offenses of the early 1990s, and I'd expect Sullivan to implement a similar offense in Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers hired Jimmy Raye II as a senior offensive assistant a few days ago, but it's unclear what his duties will be.
