Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford is taking medical leave of absence because his medical condition has not improved, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Tedford had heart surgery recently, and has missed time this season.

From NFL.com:

Tedford underwent a coronary angioplasty prior to the season and had two stents placed in an artery near his heart. He tried coming back too soon, per Rapoport. The team wants to afford Tedford time to rest and get completely healthy.

The 52-year-old was hired during the offseason. Tedford previously spent 11 seasons as the head coach at the University of California-Berkeley before he was fired in 2012. 

According to Rapoport, quarterback coach Marcus Arroyo has been involved in game-planning, and will get more of a chance while Tedford is gone.
