The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will retain offensive line coach George Warhop, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Or at least, they've retained him so far -- things could still change, but it's unlikely he'll be let go at this point. The Bucs have fired quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo and assistant offensive line coach Matt Wiegand today, and assistant coach firings tend to come in one wave.

George Warhop was heavily criticized this year for coaching one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, not helped by the fact that the Bucs held on to and frequently gave playing time to players like Garrett Gilkey and Oniel Cousins over more talented prospects like Kevin Pamphile.

Still, it's not like Warhop was given a highly-talented group of offensive linemen, and he had success with the Cleveland Browns the previous five years. Giving him another chance to prove himself is not the worst thing in the world.
