Twitter reacts: Georgia OC Todd Monken to interview with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken will interview for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vacant offensive coordinator position next week, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine.

Monken has been a popular name among NFL offensive coordinator searches after leading a 2022 Bulldogs offense that finished fifth nationally in both total offense (501 yards per game) and points per game (41).

Monken is currently the highest paid assistant coach in college football at $2.1 million per year, according USA TODAY data.

Monken held the same role for the Buccaneers from 2016-2018. He spoke on his status in Athens the week leading up to the Peach Bowl.

“At some point in my career I thought I knew exactly what I wanted next year, in five years, in 10 years, really what I wanted. I don’t know if it’s just getting old or the appreciation for the job you have, but I don’t control opportunities that come my way,” Monken said. “I would never say never to anything. I would never say no to anything, but I love where I’m at because I believe we’re going to win and I believe in the head coach. So those are all huge factors in where you decide to stay as a coach.”
