Tampa Bay Hires Butch Davis as a Senior Defensive Assistant

The Buccaneers have hired former NFL head coach Butch Davis, who’ll serve as a senior defensive assistant.

According to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times, the deal is not complete, but talks continue.

Davis, 60, coached at the University of North Carolina from 2007-10 before he was fired last July following an NCAA investigation into Tar Heels players receiving improper benefits from agents. Davis spent last season on the NFL Network’s “NFL Playbook” program.

Davis has coached at the NFL level with the Dallas Cowboys (1989-94) and was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns from 2001-04. In between, Davis worked as the head coach at the University of Miami, with Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano serving as his defensive coordinator for two seasons.
