COVID-19: Sherman to coach CBS with an assistant coach out

Cornerback Richard Sherman is working in a completely different role this coming weekend.

With a coach of Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerbacks Kevin Ross out due to Coronavirus protocols, Richard Sherman will step in on a temporary basis as an assistant coach, Peter Schrager of Fox Sports claimed on Sunday. The Buccaneers (5-1) welcome the Chicago Bears (3-3) in the afternoon NFL window.

The 33-year-old Sherman was ruled out earlier in the week with a hamstring problem that could cause him to miss many matches. He coached the defensive backs all through the week in Tampa and will play a temporary role as "assistant coach" on the sidelines, Schrager claimed. Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who spoke highly of what Richard Sherman has brought to the room, will formerly be taking over the responsibility of Ross.

Bowles said, on Tampa Bay Times via online casinos, "Well, he brought a lot of intelligence and experience, it’s different when players hear it from other players. To see somebody of that caliber come in here and learn what he did in those amount of days, it’s unfortunate he got hurt, but he’s been a big help on the sidelines as far as coaching in practice and in games, helping Dee (Delaney), helping Pierre (Desir) and helping all the corners and safeties from that aspect to see things differently and give them little tops that way. I think that has been worth its weight in gold."

An 11th-year veteran, Sherman, joined Tampa Bay Buccaneers during Week 4 and played 3 matches in 12 days after having not trained or played in over 288 days, according to ESPN. He had a rough offseason as a free agent and was limited to Tampa by QB Tom Brady. The interest between the duo ramped up when two cornerbacks of Buccaneers got injured.

The secondary of the Buccaneers has been badly hit with injury setbacks and the Buccaneers' injury list is indeed long. Rob Gronkowski - Tight end, Antonio Brown - wide receiver, and linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul are all sidelined.

General manager Jason Licht said, "Sherman helped all week."

"Ross is vaccinated, so this was a breakthrough case" he concluded.

Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles hailed Sherman for the knowledge he has applied to the defensive backs room.

Bowles said of Sherman via online casinos usa, "Well, he brought a lot of intelligence and experience."

"It’s different when players hear it from other players.

I think that has been worth in weight in gold."

Sherman is still on the books for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and there are no regulations in place that will keep him from being at the ground and being able to lend his defensive knowledge to Bowles.

Who knows, Sherman may start to gain a lot more accolades as a coach in his future, depending on what happens today.
