The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added a new coach to their coaching staff.
In need of a new running backs coach, the Bucs hired Skip Peete, who was most recently with the Dallas Cowboys.
Former #Cowboys RB Coach Skip Peete tells me he is headed to the Tampa Bay Bucs in the same role. Peete notably coached a trio of backs in Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard and Malik Davis who all finished the year without any fumbles and is credited with Pollard’s development.

His most recent tenure with the Cowboys was for the past three seasons.
The Cowboys had one of the best running back rooms in the NFL over that time with Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard.
Now Peete will be tasked with leading a new group of running backs.
Tampa Bay currently has Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White on the roster.
Both of which made a significant impact last season.
The Buccaneers were one of the worst rushing teams in the NFL this season.
Averaging only 76.9 rushing yards per game made it very difficult for them to have success on offense.
That is most likely why we saw Tom Brady lead the league in pass attempts.
But, the Buccaneers will have to rely on their run game in 2023.
With Brady no longer under center, it seems likely that the Bucs will have to shift their offensive philosophy.
Any young quarterback needs a good run game, and that is most likely what the Bucs will have.
Peete will be tasked to get the most out of Fournette and White.
While Fournette is on the back end of his career, he can still fill a short-yardage and goal-line role.
It would make sense that the Bucs look to make White the premier back.
He showed flashes of good play in 2022, and he has the explosiveness you look for in an RB.
Ultimately, Peete will be in charge of getting this run game back to complementary levels.
