Bucs complete OC interview with Detroit Lions’ Antwaan Randle El

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have completed another interview for their offensive coordinator position, and the candidate in question has some notable Tampa Bay ties.

The Bucs announced Monday that they interviewed Detroit Lions wide receivers coach Antwaan Randle El for their offensive coordinator position. While the team announced it on Monday, they revealed that they conducted the interview over Zoom on Friday before Randle El coached in Detroit’s 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Randle El is no stranger to the Bucs and even has some Super Bowl pedigree with the team. He joined Bruce Arians’ Bucs staff in 2019 as an offensive assistant and won a Super Bowl with the Bucs in 2020. He joined the Lions in 2021 and has been there since as a wide receivers coach.

Randle El, much like Dave Canales the year prior, has not called plays. Under his coaching in 2023, the Lions wideouts have netted 30 TDs, 4,401 yards on 408 receptions.
