Another Super Bowl Ring In the House

February 23rd, 2012

The Bucs announced the hiring of Bob Ligashesky today as their new special teams chief.

Ligashesky ran the Steelers’ special teams during the 2007, 2008 and 2009 seasons and scored a ring after Pittsburgh beat the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa. Ligashesky got a pink slip from the Steelers two years ago, and he’s worked for the Broncos and Raiders since.

Joe’s sniffed around on Ligashesky and his firing seemed to be welcomed by Steelers fans after the ’09 season. But that hardly means much to Joe. Clearly, Ligashesky knows what winning football looks like and adds more NFL experience — and another ring — to the Greg Schiano regime.

Joe will raise a cold one in hopes Ligashesky can at least figure out who the Bucs’ best returner options are. Joe’s not sure that happened last year.

    He is Polish, and will miss the good Kielbasa and Pirogi’s he was accustomed to, back in Pittsburgh. Hopefully, he will acquire a taste for Cuban and Grouper Sandwiches here in Tampa.
