Bob Bostad is Tampa Bay Buccaneers new offensive line coach per report

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports and now confirmed by the Tampa Bay Times, Bob Bostad is the new offensive line coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bob Bostad was the offensive coordinator at the University of Pittsburgh for just a few weeks, after spending six years with Wisconsin as a tight ends coach, running game coordinator and finally offensive line coach. Under Bostad, Wisconsin produced a consistently dominant offensive line that helped produce an offense based on a powerful running game. Bostad's most significant players during that time were 2011 first-round draft pick Gabe Carimi and 2011 third-round draft pick John Moffitt.

The Buccaneers continue to steal coaches from college programs just weeks after they signed up. In addition to Bostad, P.J. Fleck - reportedly the Bucs' new receivers coach - and new defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan left their college jobs for the Buccaneers within a month of signing up for those college jobs.

The Buccaneers are close to completing their coaching staff, although at least two key positions still remain unfilled as far as we know: quarterbacks coach and special teams coach.
