Jeff Tedford: Bucs Told Me Not to Come Back


Jeff Tedford was ready and willing to resume his duties as Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator with five games to play this season, he said, but was persuaded not to by coach Lovie Smith.

“When I let them know I was ready to come back, Lovie felt like it would kind of disrupt the continuity,’’ Tedford said Wednesday while taking in an East-West Shrine Game practice at Shorecrest Preparatory School.

“And then they kind of let me know that they really couldn’t commit to me for another year. I don’t know if they were apprehensive because of my health or what, but that was kind of it.’’
