Sources: Liam Coen agrees to be Buccaneers' offensive coordinator

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with Liam Coen as their new offensive coordinator, sources confirmed to ESPN Saturday.

The Bucs completed interviews with their candidates early Friday morning and Coen publicly emerged as the favorite. But sources said then that details were still being worked out with the University of Kentucky as Coen was still under contract as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Terms of the deal weren't immediately available, nor what arrangements needed to be made with Kentucky.

Coen was an attractive hire for the Bucs as he had previously worked in Sean McVay's system, serving as the Los Angeles Rams' assistant wide receivers coach from 2018-2019, assistant quarterbacks coach in 2020 and offensive coordinator in 2022, with stints at Kentucky as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2021 and in 2023.
