New York Giants 2012 Offseason: Buccaneers Hire Mike Sullivan As Offensive Coordinator, Per PFT

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired New York Giants quarterback's coach Mike Sullivan as their new offensive coordinator for the 2012 season.

Rebuffed on multiple occasions by teams who did to the Bucs what the Bucs historically have done to other teams (i.e., refuse to let position coaches who are under contract interview for coordinator jobs), new coach Greg Schiano finally has found someone to run his offense.

Before Sullivan coached Eli Manning to lead the team to a Super Bowl XLVI victory over the Patriots, he coached the Giants wide receivers from 2006 to 2010 when he switched to the team's quarterback's coach. The Buccaneers are looking for Sullivan to help young quarterback Josh Freeman, who struggled in 2011 compared to how he played in the 2010 season, in the same ways that he helped Manning over the last two seasons.
