Bryan Cox Is Physical — In The Meeting Room

July 22nd, 2013

Joe doesn’t hide his appreciation of Bryan Cox. The Buccaneers” pass-rush coach (last year he was front-7 coach) is a colorful character. 

Cox was that way during his Pro Bowl playing days, and he is as a Bucs assistant coach.

Cox told Joe he has no bigger aspirations in coaching and just likes to get after it and teach the game. Joe believes that attitude lets Cox be his own man while still being a loyal member of the New Schiano Order. Plus, the postgame cigar dangling from Cox’s mouth in the locker room is more like a Cuban missile than one of the country’s trademark smokes. Joe finds that amusing.

Cox’s impact has been felt in a big way, and his style is appreciated. Take the comment on from Bucs rookie defensive end Steven Means, who describes Cox as a physical coach, as in hands on guys in the meeting room.

That’s just beautiful.

Not seen in the video linked above is Joe asking Means about how coaching techniques are different in Tampa than what he experienced in college. Means said other than a little more detail and focus on hands and hips work there’s little change in the pros– except for how Bucs coaches “make you” get it right.

That sounds like Cox at work.

    Too bad Cox didn’t slap Wright silly. We need all the passion we can get.

    I remember Brian Cox flipping off Bills fans at games. No doubt they were shouting mean things at him, but that comes with football. Brian Cox has never had any class and he still doesn’t.

    I love this attitude. He’s not coaching boy scouts, he’s training guys to bust heads.

    Yeah, I think I would listen to everything Cox says. The man certainly played to the beat of his own drum, and more than held his own back in his heyday. He’s still probably as animated now as he was then. He’s always been a colorful person but he never took a play off. These guys are lucky to have a decorated former player as their coach if just for his wealth of knowledge. Just like how I think RB coach Ernest Byner is a great asset also.

    When the Bucs are top 10 in sacks, lets take up a collection for cigars.

    @Biff Barker

    You can count me in for that. Of course, Thanks to the pop-star and his D-line. I won’t have to pony up money for years and years…..

    With Cox’s great Lb experience and attitude he always displayed, we have a great coaching advantage. I like it that we have brought in coaches who played and where successful in the NFL. Coaches Cox And Byner both where great players I know I wished we had in orange and white…dreaded seeing them play us. Glad we are now on the same team. Get in their face hands on coaches who know whats, what on the field. Extend them now. Go Bucs!
