The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have promoted Skyler Fulton to wide receivers coach, the team announced today. Fulton will take over for Todd Monken, who will now focus on his offensive coordinator duties exclusively.
Fulton joined the Bucs in 2016 as a diversity coaching fellow, and has worked his way up the coaching chain rapidly. He’d only coached at very small schools before joining the Bucs, most recently as the wide receivers coach at Citrus College. He has no pro experience, and played his college football under Dirk Koetter at Arizona State.
The Bucs have an outstanding receiving corps, featuring Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, Chris Godwin and Adam Humphries, among others, so Fulton has plenty of talent to work with.
Meanwhile, Monken will now get to focus his attentions on being an offensive coordinator exclusively, after having a dual role (OC and WR coach) the past two years. It’s not clear how Monken and head coach Dirk Koetter will divide their responsibilities, though. Koetter will almost certainly retain his playcalling duties. He said as much in his season-ending press conference, anyway.
