The Bucs reached a deal with Wannstedt, 60, to become their special teams coach. Wannstedt returned to the NFL as an assistant head coach and linebackers coach with the Bills in 2011 and became the defensive coordinator in 2012. It’s surprising that Wannstedt has taken a job coaching special teams, rather than defense, where most of his coaching experience has been. Wannstedt coached receivers and special teams in his first full-time position, from 1977 to 1978 at Pitt. Friday, the Bucs coach repaid the favor, sort of. He coached linebackers and was the assistant head coach in 2011, and defensive coordinator this season. So, is this is a good hire given the fact that coaching special teams is something of a specialty ? That question won’t get a firm answer until we kick things off in the fall, but my inclination is to trust that Schiano knows what he’s doing here.
