relax guys. not sure you can blame tomlin for this. not even sure if he was allowed to make the hire
If you guys don't like these old coaches call them up and tell them about it. Richard Manns phone number is 9 and Dick Lebeaus phone number is 3.
Heck, Bruce Arians was our receivers coach so by comparrison, this guy will be like having Vince Lombardi.
"For the past few years, Mann has been assisting and consulting players as they prepare for the NFL Draft. Prior to joining the Buccaneers, Mann spent the 2001 season as the Washington Redskins wide receivers coach."
By past few years, do they mean12 years? Wow, he must be a hot commodity in the NFL circles. No coaching jobs in the last 12 years? Nice hire Tomlin.
So many people are so quick to judgment in the face of a complete lack of evidence. Invariably, these premature assessments are negative. It seems that if you dislike Tomlin (for whatever reason) you must also dislike any hires done under his tenure. Really don't understand why people feel the need to jump to conclusions all the time around here, but the lack of rationality is mind boggling.
