Bill Sheridan hasn’t had much success in the NFL recently, getting fired as the Giants defensive coordinator after the 2009 season and then coaching linebackers on the ill-fated 2011 Dolphins squad.
|Latest NFL news, notes|
Which is great news for a guy whose squad allowed 427 points, the second-most ever allowed by a Giants squad, in his only year as the defensive coordinator.
The Lantern, Ohio State’s student paper, broke the news and wrote that the school confirmed Sheridan is leaving the Buckeyes program.
Sheridan will join a franchise that now includes Butch Davis as an advisor to Schiano, Mike Sullivan as the offensive coordinator and former 49ers offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye as an offensive assistant.
Also, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Bucs also will hire former Dolphins linebacker Bryan Cox as a defensive assistant.
