Another Bucs Coaching Move

January 16th, 2015

Bucs assistant OL coach Matt Wiegand is also leaving the team.

In the wake of the news that ill-suited acting offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo has left the Bucs, Joe has learned of another coaching transaction.

It seems assistant offensive line coach Matt Wiegand will not return.

Joe isn’t sure what this means for offensive line coach George Warhop’s status with the Bucs, if anything at all.

Wiegand was a Jeff Tedford guy, having served under him at the University of California as a graduate assistant coach.

Joe wishes Wiegand the best in his future endeavors.

    How many OL coaches were there ? 2 ?

  2. OB Says:

    Obviously there were not enough since the OL was so bad unless they were told they had to use the starters, which is possible since McCown kept playing after proving he should be retired.

    Iupati to bucs. Let it happen.

  4. Mumbles Says:

    I got a bad feeling about Warhop. He should have been on his back with both legs in the air by now! This man needs to go….now!

    Warhop recommended Cousins…why Lovie or any Bucs brass can have faith in this guy is a bigger mystery than what the NFLPA’s findings were in Schianogate and the medical record debacle of Josh Van Winkle

  8. Robert 9 Says:

    he will be sorelt missed

    After every Bucs loss this season, I was screaming at the TV, “Damn you, assistant offensive line coach Matt Wiegand!”

  10. Gt40bear Says:

    Got a baaaaad feeling Warhop isn’t going anywhere.

    good very good….the changes on the o line absolutely should start with the coaches they had to be as horrible as the players were

    Dirk wants his own guys. This is justified.

  16. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Just because WARHOP is not fired yet, that doesn’t mean he won’t be. We’ll have to wait and see.

    But in all honesty…they didn’t exactly have top talent to work with.

  17. Bucs, Arroyo part ways » The Bay Cave Says:

    […] the Bucs confirmed the parting of both sides, has reported that the team released assistant offensive line coach Matt Wiegand. With much […]

  18. tmaxcon Says:


    And the reason they did not have any talent is your boy Lovie blowing up the line without a plan and screwing up free agency but yet we are not supposed say a bad word about lovie. Lovie is a joke… before you make excuses for him. He has final say in every decision so there is no defense. he made bad decisions period.

    We have a winner!

    Forget about Tony Sparano. He’s been hired by the Bills.

  21. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    It’s still early in the day…..probably more to come today!!!

  23. Buc-O's 82 Says:

    Warhops ass should be the first O line coach shown to the MLK Blvd exit. God I hope this rat is not the scapegoat and Warhop stays

  24. Pickgrin Says:

    I’m not much on publicly calling for someone to lose their job – but in this case – it is more than justified. FIRE WARHOP!!!!

  25. Scott Says:

    Hey fyi It was not Sparano from the Raiders to get hired to the Bills. It was Sparano Jr. he was a qb coach on Jets

  26. bucrightoff Says:

    Warhop is being retained. Lovie needs him because he needs someone to fire next year to take the heat off him after another underwhelming season. The Lovie way lives on.

  27. Ray Rice Says:

    Who?????? …..Yea. Next!

  28. Robert 9 Says:

    BUCRIGHTOFF nailed it on the head.

    him and frazier when the defense gets taken apart after teams might take us seriously. the D won’t be so pretty when the opponents actually play.

    Hire !!!

    Jim Michalczik (Offensive Line Coach)
    • Current NFL players Alex Mack and Mitchell Schwartz of the Browns, along with Brian De La Puente (New Orleans Saints), are among the 12 former offensive linemen that played for Michalczik to be signed by NFL teams. Others that have spent time on NFL rosters include Justin Cheadle, Mike Gibson, Ryan O’Callaghan, Aaron Merz, Marvin Philip, Erik Robertson, Mike Tepper, Scott Tercero and Mark Wilson.

    Cameron Norcross (Asst. Offensive Line Coach)
    • One of the leading young minds working with the Pistol offense today is Cam Norcross. Norcross has played an important role in the development of Chris Ault’s Pistol Offense since its inception prior to the 2005 season. The offense has developed into one of the premier offensive attacks in the nation as Nevada has been one of the top rushing teams in the nation since 2005, leading the nation in rushing in 2009.

    Under the direction of Norcross in 2010, Nevada was third in the nation in rushing with 292.1 yards per game and Nevada was fourth in the nation in total offense. The Wolf Pack became the first team in NCAA history to have three 1,000-yard rushers during the 2009 season. Colin Kaepernick and running back Vai Taua became the top rushing duo in NCAA history in terms of points scored and yards gained.

    My bad, It was football related though.

  31. Teacherman777 Says:

    Do you guys know whose o-line was worse than ours???


  32. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Sign stephen weisenawski and chris boling. Move Collins to RT and draft Laken Tomlinson in the third. Denzel Perryman in 2nd!

  33. Upthegut Says:

    has anyone seen George Worhop and Derrick Shelton in the same room at the same time?

  34. Owlykat Says:

    I pegged WarFLOP as a loser early. He has to go and Cousins and the Brownie Backup Center both need to follow him right out the door!

  36. Skyline Crew for Mariota or Winston Says:

    Just read that Warhop was retained. Bad move IMO.

  37. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    You are correct Skyline:

    For the life of me I do not understand this but Koetter must like the guy and it is his offense now….. I wonder if the Special Teams coach will be kept or is he “Dead Man Walking” at One Buc like Arroyo and Warhop’s assistant were….

  38. Dade City Ray Says:

    Ok, I am NOT saying that Lovie needs to be fired or lose his job. However I am quite perplexed by a lot of his decisions that he has made. He was quoted as saying Glennon was his quarterback of the future, and yet, once they were finally eliminated godawful NFC South, where was Glennon? Where were all the backup young players? Once eliminated it should have been a full bore youth movement and yet it wasn’t.? Why not? What can possibly be gained from playing guys 3 or 4 more games that have been sucking it up for 12 already. Lovie needs to take a page from Gruden’s play book, and let Kuetter assemble his own offensive staff and stay the hell out of the way, like Gruden did with Monty Kiffin when he took over the team in 2001.
