On Saturday, two days after the Buccaneers announced that Lovie Smith would be the next coach, the team named Jeff Tedford the new offensive coordinator.

“We are very fortunate to have Jeff as our offensive coordinator,” said Smith in a statement released by the team. “I have a great deal of respect for the job Jeff did at Cal for more than a decade and I believe he will be a great fit for what we are attempting to do in Tampa. Jeff has a successful and proven track record as a teacher and developer of young talent and I know our players, and the organization as a whole, will benefit from his experience.”

Tedford joins the Bucs after 11 seasons at the University of California where he worked with former first-rounders Kyle Boller and Aaron Rodgers and was also the winningest coach in school history. Tedford had previously worked as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Oregon (1998-2001).

Leslie Frazier, the recently fired Vikings coach, is expected to be named the Bucs' defensive coordinator.
