Shot at Bucs Staff Coaching Senior Bowl
The Bucs are the next NFC team in line to coach the Senior Bowl if for some reason the Lions turn down the opportunity. With the Lions firing 3 assistants it is always possible.
Teams with brand new coaching staffs are automatically ineligible to coach the game and the newer format has the non-fired coach and coaching staff of the team with the worst record coach the game.
I really feel that it has really benefited teams in the past to coach the Senior Bowl (49ers with Patrick Willis, Redskins with several players, Bucs several players) as it gives them an up close and personal look at a large number of good prospects. As fans, it will also give us a good idea of how the Bucs new staff operates. I'm really hopeful the Bucs get the privilege of coaching the game.
