Buccaneers Hire Bill Sheridan As Defensive Coordinator

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have themselves a new defensive coordinator -- Bill Sheridan is leaving his post as cornerbacks coach at Ohio State to return to the NFL.

Sheridan, like newly hired offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, is a former New York Giants assistant. Both men worked under Tom Coughlin on the Giants squad that won the Super Bowl in 2008.

"Bill is a great teacher who brings a tremendous understanding of defensive football to the Buccaneers organization," Bucs coach Greg Schiano said in a statement, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "Over the last three decades, he has had the opportunity to work under some great head coaches like Bo Schembechler, Nick Saban, Lloyd Carr and Tom Coughlin. His experience and knowledge will be a great benefit to our defensive staff."

The Buccaneers have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday, when they will officially announce the hire.
