Report: Schiano Staff Nearly CompleteFebruary 7th, 2012
Joe hopes this isn’t true. Let Joe explain.
Alex Marvez, who is a very-well-plugged-in NFL type who writes for FoxSports.com and works for SiriusXM NFL Radio, just posted a report that new Bucs coach Greg Schiano has his staff just about set.
A source told FOXSports.com that Ron Turner and Bill Lazor are among the candidates being considered at offensive coordinator. Schiano also will be adding three of his former staff members at Rutgers University — Bob Fraser (linebackers), Brian Angelichio (tight ends) and Jeff Haley (assistant defensive backs coach).
This frightens Joe to his very bones. Ron Turner is a horrible quarterback coach and has — at best — an underwhelming resume as an offensive coordinator. Unless a guy’s name is “Mike Martz,” why in the world would anyone want a jettisoned Bears quarterback coach?
Currently, Turner’s career highlight is developing Kurt Kittner.
Oh, and he got run from Illinois for having a putrid offense as well.
Joe is crossing his fingers this report is inaccurate, if for no other reason than for Josh Freeman’s career.
