Garrett also spent 2004-07 as the wide receivers coach for the University of Virginia. During his time with the Cowboys, Garrett was instrumental in helping Dallas TE Jason Witten become one of the league’s premier tight ends. Since Garrett took over as tight ends coach in 2007, Witten leads all tight ends in receptions (554) and receiving yards (6,110). Witten also made five Pro Bowls (2007-10, 2012) and five All-Pro teams (2007-10, 2012). As the Dallas’ passing game coordinator, Garrett also helped QB Tony Romo set career highs in passer rating (102.5 in 2011) and passing yards (4,903 in 2012), the most in Cowboys history. This season will mark McNulty’s 11th in the NFL. He previously served as the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterbacks coach (2012), as well as the wide receivers coach for the Cardinals (2009-11), Dallas Cowboys (2003) and Jacksonville Jaguars (1998-2002). He also worked under current Buccaneers Head Greg Coach Schiano at Rutgers from 2004-08. Under McNulty, Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald recorded three straight Pro Bowl selections (2009-11) and two All-Pro selections (2009, 2011), leading the league in touchdown receptions (13) in 2010. Fitzgerald became the Cardinals’ franchise leader in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns, and 100-yard games during McNulty’s tenure. While with New Orleans, Oden helped lead the Saints to three NFC South division titles, in addition to winning Super Bowl XLIV. The 2009 Saints recorded the second-most interception return yards in the league from 2006-11 (652), led by S Darren Sharper, who tied for the league lead with nine interceptions and set an NFL record with 376 interception return yards. Oden’s Saints teams finished in the top five in pass yards allowed in 2006 (third – 178.4 yards per game) and 2010 (fourth – 193.9 yards per game). S Roman Harper’s 7.5 sacks in 2011 were the second-most by a defensive back in NFL history, and Harper made back-to-back Pro Bowls (2009-10). While with the Texans, the team set records in interceptions (22) and interception return yards (393) in 2004. Smith will enter his first NFL season, having spent the previous 14 seasons in the college ranks. He previously served at Rutgers as defensive coordinator/secondary coach (2012), special teams coordinator and linebackers coach (2011), special teams coordinator/cornerbacks coach (2010), and special teams coordinator/outside linebackers coach (2009); at Maine as assistant head coach/outside linebackers coach (2006-08), assistant special teams/linebackers coach (2005), and defensive backs coach (2002-04) at Maine; and at Iowa as a quality control/defensive graduate assistant (1999-2001). In his only year as the defensive coordinator, Smith helped make Rutgers one of the best defenses in college football, ranking fourth in the nation in points allowed per game (14.2), sixth in rush yards allowed per game (95.2) and 10th in total defense (311.6 YPG). Smith also helped Rutgers LB Khaseem Greene become an All-American. Wannstedt brings nearly two decades of NFL experience to the Buccaneers. He has previously served as the defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys (1989-91), the Cowboys assistant head coach (1992), the Chicago Bears head coach (1993-98), the Miami Dolphins assistant head coach (1999), the Dolphins head coach (2000-04) the Buffalo Bills assistant head coach/inside linebackers coach (2011) and the Bills assistant head coach/defensive coordinator (2012).
