The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be well-represented at this year’s East-West Shrine game. Per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, they’ll have seven assistants on the East coaching staff.


None of those assistants are highly-placed, though. Dave Borgonzi’s the defensive quality control coach, Skyler Fulton an offensive assistant, Andrew Weidinger the assistant wide receivers and game management coach, Chad Wade the assistant strength and conditioning coach, and Zack Grossi the offensive quality control coach. On the West coaching staff, Danny Breyer is a Bucs defensive assistant, while Joe Vaughn is another assistant strength and conditioning coach.

Still, those coaches should be able to get a lot of inside information the Bucs on the prospective draft picks at the game. The East-West Shrine game isn’t the most prestigious post-season bowl game around, that’d be the Senior Bowl, but there’s usually some decent talent there, including a few potential Pro Bowlers.

The Bucs’ over-representation on that coaching staff may or may not have something to do with the game being played in St. Petersburg at Tropicana Field. Who knows. If you want to watch it, the date is Saturday January 20.
