Buccaneers Add Three to Coaching Staff

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced three additions to their 2011 coaching staff on Tuesday.

Including among today's hires are Keith Millad and Grady Stetz, who will both coach the team's defensive line. Millard will focus on the team's pass rush, while Stetz handles the team's run defense.

A first-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings, Millard was a two-time Pro Bowler and NFL Defensive Player of the Year in a career that also included stints with the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and Philadelphia Eagles.

Millard entered the NFL coaching ranks with the Denver Broncos in 2002 and moved on to the Oakland Raiders from 2005-08.

Stretz has coached at the collegiate level since 1996, beginning at UCLA, his alma mater, and continuing at the University of New Mexico and Arizona State, where he's spent the past five seasons as the defensive line coach.

The Buccaneers also announced the hiring of Tyrone Pettway as the defensive quality control coach. Pettway spent the past two seasons as a defensive assistant under Monte Kiffin at the University of Tennessee and USC.
