TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Buccaneers have hired long-time NFL assistant Jimmy Raye as a senior offensive assistant to new head coach Greg Schiano.
The club announced the addition to Schiano’s staff on Wednesday.
Raye has been in coaching for 40 seasons, 34 of them in the NFL. He has been an offensive coordinator for the Bucs, St. Louis Rams, New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers. He also was a senior offensive assistant with the New York Jets for two seasons.
Schiano said in a statement that Raye’s experience and knowledge will be an “invaluable resource” to Tampa Bay’s coaches and players.
