So it seems new Bucs offensive coordinator Dave Canales is busy finding guys to round out his staff. And it doesn’t appear Bucs coach Todd Bowles is being a helicopter parent.
Yesterday WFLA-TV Channel 8 sports reporter Karen Loftus caught up with Bucs Pro Bowl right tackle Tristan Wirfs at an event to celebrate the Bucs hosting a girls flag football tournament at One Buc Palace.
There, Wirfs said he finally got to meet his new coordinator. Wirfs was working out at One Buc Palace and popped in to Bowles’ office for a visit. Asking about Canales, Bowles told Wirfs that Canales was in his office in a zoom interview so go ahead and walk in, which Wirfs did.
We do know Canales is bringing along from Seattle assistant Seahawks’ receivers coach Brad Idzik. This hasn’t been officially announced so it’s unclear what Idzik’s direct responsibilities are.
Joe just found it interesting that Canales apparently is wasting no time getting his feet on the ground in Tampa and getting to work. Also interesting is that Bowles apparently wasn’t involved in the interview.
Sounds like #Bucs OC Dave Canales is full speed already. @WFLAKaren chatted with Tristan Wirfs tonight at the Bucs flag football event and Wirfs said he worked out this morning at the facility, then decided to meet his new coordinator. pic.twitter.com/5al9BvDsIM
