Bucs add Van Pelt as QB coach

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a new quarterbacks coach. It’s Alex Van Pelt, according to our John Clayton.

I like the move because Van Pelt is a young guy and has played in the league. That should help him relate to Josh Freeman, who basically is the franchise in Tampa Bay.

Van Pelt was quarterbacks coach in Buffalo before being promoted to offensive coordinator right before the start of the season. Greg Olson remains as Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator and will work closely with Van Pelt and Freeman.
