George Warhop to coach Tampa Bay O-line

TAMPA, Fla. – The Buccaneers took a big step toward completing their coaching staff Saturday afternoon when they announced George Warhop will coach the offensive line.

Warhop has been an offensive line coach in the NFL since 1996, working for the Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys and 49ers. Warhop spent the past five seasons with Cleveland.

Warhop takes over a unit that underperformed much of last season and may go through some changes this offseason. There is uncertainty about the health of guard Carl Nicks, and tackle Donald Penn and guard Davin Joseph are getting older and carrying big salary-cap numbers.
