Bucs Hire Crazy Bryan CoxFebruary 17th, 2012
Now this news has brought a smile to Joe’s face.
Per NFL insider Adam Schefter, he Twittered a short while ago that the Bucs are expected to bring Bryan Cox in as a defensive assistant.
Tampa Bay also is expected to hire Bryan Cox as defensive asst coach.
Joe has followed Cox since his days in high school. He grew up not far from Joe, under very different circumstances. Joe’s a child of the corn. Cox grew up in a true definition of a “hood,” East St. Louis, Ill.
Cox is simply crazy and loyal to a fault. He’s from the Bill Parcells/Bill Belicheat tree, having played for the former and coached for the latter.
Cox is crazy. There are many stories about how Cox is a good guy, but nuts. Joe’s favorite is when he signed with the Bears (whoops, there’s that Dave Wannstedt connection again), Cox showed up for his introductory press conference wearing a Blues jersey.
For those from the Midwest, you can understand how that went over with the Chicago types.
Cox is not known for keeping his intense, outspoken feelings to himself. To put it bluntly, Quincy Black is in for a very, very, very rude awakening, which may just be what he needs.
UPDATE: Per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, he Twittered Cox has indeed been hired.
