The Bucs have hired Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan as offensive coordinator. Josh Freeman called it "good news" and said he felt fortunate.
Sullivan is said to be a great communicator, and he will work to improve Freeman's ball protection. A former Army Ranger, Sullivan has a blue belt in jiujitsu and uses a triangle design of the Gracies, the famous mixed martial arts family, to highlight three goals for his quarterbacks: decision-making, accuracy and leadership.
It remains to be seen what kind of play-caller Sullivan will be, but he has had a window seat to the Giants offense under coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Another bonus is that Sullivan also knows how to get the best out of receivers, which will be big in stimulating the Bucs' Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn.
