An ordeal that cost Jeff Jagodzinski the head-coaching job at Boston College ended Thursday with him landing the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator job.
Jagodzinski arrived in Tampa on Wednesday, spent all day meeting with Buccaneers officials and signed the deal Thursday morning.
Before visiting Tampa, Jagodzinski also interviewed with the 49ers for their offensive coordinator job and the Browns for their offensive line coach job.
Jagodzinski will be handed the keys to new head coach Raheem Morris‘ offense, which is chock full of questions. Both of Tampa Bay’s top quarterbacks, Jeff Garcia and Luke McCown, are free agents. Both of its top wide receivers, Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton, also are free agents.
But the Buccaneers decided Jagodzinski, whom BC fired after he interviewed for the Jets’ head-coaching job, is the man to tackle those problems and lead their offense.
