Bucs assistant coach David Raih leaves for Washington

Another member of Tampa Bay’s offensive staff is going elsewhere this offseason.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday that Bucs offensive assistant David Raih is leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to join the Washington Commanders as their tight ends coach for 2024. The move reunites Raih with Commanders offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury, for who he was a wide receivers coach in Arizona.

Raih was a very recent addition to Tampa Bay’s staff. He joined the Bucs in 2023 when offensive coordinator Dave Canales came to Tampa Bay to be a part of his offensive staff as a senior assistant. Canales would leave the Bucs just a year later to be the head coach of the Carolina Panthers, so with that connection gone, Raih joins another one in Kingsbury under new Commanders head coach Dan Quinn.

Raih is one of a number of staff changes to the Bucs this season following Canales’ departure. The offensive staff in Tampa Bay could look a lot different under new offensive coordinator Liam Coen, who was hired at the beginning of February.
