Buccaneers Hiring Keith Armstrong As Special Teams Coordinator


Rick Stroud is reporting that the Buccaneers have agreed to terms with Keith Armstrong to be their new special teams coordinator.

The Bills recently interviewed Armstrong for the same position, but reports from today had said that a deal could be in place with the Buccaneers at some point in the near future.

Bruce Arians has done a great job of getting a good portion of his coaching staff under contract in just a few days.

Armstrong, 55, began his coaching career at Temple as a graduate assistant back in 1987. He worked for a number of schools including Miami, Akron, Oklahoma Stae and Notre Dame before the Falcons hired him as their safeties coach in 1996.

Armstrong had stints with the Bears and Dolphins as their special teams coordinator before he returned to the Falcons as their special teams coach in 2008.

According to FootballOutsiders, the Falcons’ special teams unit ranked No. 10 in the NFL.
