INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano says he’s going to hire LSU defensive backs coach Ron Cooper as his secondary coach.

Schiano made the announcement Thursday at the NFL scouting combine. He said the deal is not official yet, but expects Cooper to sign the necessary paperwork shortly.

Cooper molded several stars at LSU. The Tigers featured two national award winners in Morris Claiborne (Thorpe Award) and Tyrann Mathieu (Bednarik Award) this past season. In 2010, Patrick Peterson won the Thorpe and Bednarik awards, and was the fifth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
