Dirk Koetter Must Be the Choice for ONE REASON: George Warhop...Tampa's Offensive Line Coach after a stint in Cleveland where guess what? Warhop joined the Buccaneers after five seasons with Cleveland (2009-13) as the offensive line coach. While with the Browns, Warhop coached tackle Joe Thomas to Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors each season. Warhop also helped center Alex Mack to an all-rookie selection in 2009, while also earning Pro Bowl berths in 2010 and 2013, with a second-team All-Pro selection in 2013. Here is his complete Bio: George Warhop enters his fifth season with the Buccaneers in 2018, after spending the first two seasons as the offensive line coach before adding the title of run game coordinator in 2016. While this past season saw tackle Donovan Smith miss the first snaps of his career, Smith still managed to start all 16 games for the third consecutive season, joining Paul Gruber as the only players in franchise history to start all 48 games in their first three seasons. Warhop also assisted Ali Marpet as Marpet transitioned from guard to center and new starter J.R. Sweezy slotted in at right guard. The offensive line helped to block for an offense that averaged 363.5 yards per game, the ninth-most in the NFL, and 352 total first downs, the second-most in the league. The 2016 season saw second-year players guard Ali Marpet and tackle Donovan Smith play every single snap for the Buccaneers, while third-year guard Kevin Pamphile started all 14 games he played in, after having four total starts in his first two seasons. Marpet, Pamphile and Smith, along with center Joe Hawley and tackle Demar Dotson, were the main starters for a Buccaneers offense that converted a franchise-record 43.9 percent of third down attempts, the sixth-highest mark in the NFL. Warhop also oversaw the Buccaneers running game, which featured running back Jacquizz Rodgers recording his first two career 100-yard rushing games and a career-best 560 rushing yards on the season. In 2015, Warhop coached an offensive line that featured two rookie starters and only one holdover from the previous year – left guard Logan Mankins, who earned a Pro Bowl berth following the 2015 season. These changes helped the Buccaneers put together one of the top offensive lines in the NFL, with the team blocking for the NFL’s second-leading rushing (running back Doug Martin – 1,402 yards) and 2,162 team rushing yards – the fifth-most rushing yards in the NFL and the second-most in a season in team history. Tampa Bay’s offensive line also allowed only 27 sacks, tied for the fourth-fewest in the league. Warhop joined the Buccaneers after five seasons with Cleveland (2009-13) as the offensive line coach. While with the Browns, Warhop coached tackle Joe Thomas to Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors each season. Warhop also helped center Alex Mack to an all-rookie selection in 2009, while also earning Pro Bowl berths in 2010 and 2013, with a second-team All-Pro selection in 2013. Prior to joining Cleveland, Warhop spent four seasons with San Francisco (2005-08), helping running back Frank Gore record three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, including a franchise-record 1,695 in 2006. Warhop joined the 49ers after two seasons with Dallas (2003-04), where he helped tackle Flozell Adams
