Todd Monken has been hired to be the offensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Bucs, per reports.
Monken led the Golden Eagles to a 9-5 record this season. This news comes as a shock to Southern Miss, who had a huge recruiting weekend on campus and picked up three commitments from it.
Monken will be taking over for the Bucs offense after turning around the Southern Miss program and bringing it back to a bowl game after three losing seasons.
Bill McGillis commented that he will begin the coaching search tonight and hopes to have someone in place by next weekend.
Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
