Paul Spicer joining Bucs coaching staff

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to announce the hiring of Paul Spicer as assistant defensive line coach.

The move will put Spicer back with defensive line coach Joe Cullen. They worked together in similar roles in Jacksonville in 2012 and '13. Spicer played defensive end for the Jaguars from 2000 to 2008.

Spicer takes the place of Mike Phair, who left to become the co-defensive coordinator at Illinois.
