Terry Cousin hired as Director of Player Engagement by Tampa Bay Buccaneers

New, comment

According to Pewter Report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired former NFL player Terry Cousin as their director of player engagement. Supposedly the hire occurred earlier this month. Cousin previously worked as the South Carolina Gamecocks' director of player development. Presumably he will work with players helping them adjust to life in the NFL.

Cousin played in the NFL for 12 seasons as a cornerback and safety with various teams, entering the league with the Chicago Bears. There's a Greg Schiano connection, there: Cousin was coached by the Buccaneers' head coach in 1997 and 1998, when Schiano was with the Chicago Bears as an assistant.

The Bucs have worked hard to expand their front office, and with Cousin that expansion continues. Slowly but surely, the Bucs are overhauling the organization on various different levels as Schiano molds the organization to his vision. We'll probably see plenty of turnover over the next year or so.
