Assistant Coaches Update
League sources believe that the hiring of Larry Brooks as defensive line coach is imminent. That would complete the staff, except, obviously, for the position of head coach.
Most of the assistants had one year left on their contracts and have signed extensions, sources said. Don Breaux and Jack Burns, offensive assistants under Joe Gibbs, could emerge with new titles that are more in a consulting vein. Many coaches have signed already, with only a couple still mulling the extension offer. Running backs coach Earnest Byner, whose contract expires Thursday, was offered only a one-year deal, league sources said, and is scheduled to interview with Tampa Bay Tuesday. The new coaching hierarchy, with two coordinators at the top, is a more traditional model than it was under Gibbs.
New offensive coordinator Jim Zorn is expected to work closely with Jason Campbell, which likely means the end of Bill Lazor's tenure as quarterbacks coach.
