Is A Wise Move Coming?February 10th, 2012
Joe’s not one to quote notorious WDAE-AM 620 host Dan Sileo, but Joe must admit that Sileo told his audience that Butch Davis was on his way to Tampa Bay in a matter of hours following the hiring of head coach Greg Schiano.
And since Sileo seems to have his finger on the pulse of all things related to his former football team, the Miami Hurricanes, Joe finds it worthy to share last night’s Tweet from the sometimes fabricating radio host. Sileo Twittered that veteran offensive line coach Tony Wise, a former Hurricane, will join the Bucs.
@DSHurricane93: Tony wise will be next Buc fans….ur welcome on butch davis
What a quality hire Wise would be — the fourth O-line coach in five years for the Bucs’ high-priced veteran unit. Wise won Super Bowl rings as the Cowboys’ O-line coach from 1989-1992.
Wise then moved on to the same role and an assistant head coach title with the Bears in the mid 1990s, and most recently served in the NFL with the Dolphins from 2001-2004, and the Jets in ’06 and ’07. His last job was with the University of Pittsburgh under Dave Wannstedt.
Seemingly, the Bucs could do a lot worse than an old trenches guy who knows what championship football looks like.
