Greg Schiano to hire at least three Rutgers assistants per report

New, comments

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will hire three Rutgers assistants to their coaching staff. Those three assistants are Bob Fraser who will join the staff as a linebackers coach, Brian Agelichio who will be the tight ends coach and Jeff Hafley who will be the assistant defensive backs coach.

Bob Fraser was Schiano's defensive coordinator at Rutgers in the final three seasons of Schiano's reign. Fraser has a background as a linebackers coach, but has never coached in the NFL according to his Rutgers profile. Fraser was the coordinator for some excellent defenses at Rutgers.

Brian Angelichio was the tight ends coach at Rutgers this past season, after serving in the same capacity for the PIttsburgh Panthers for five seasons. Jeff Hafley was a first-year secondary coach at Rutgers but will be taking a step back in Tampa, just like Bob Fraser.

The fact that the Bucs are assembling a staff of assistant coaches likely means they're very close to signing coordinators, as those coordinators must be capable of working with the hired assistants.
