P.J. Fleck Resigns As Northern Illinois Offensive Coordinator To Join Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Just one day after resigning as Northern Illinois offensive coordinator, P.J. Fleck has agreed to become the wide receivers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Just one day after resigning as Northern Illinois offensive coordinator, P.J. Fleck has agreed to become the wide receivers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago.

Fleck was hired just a few days ago from Rutgers, but he ended up resigning from his position after just one day. For the past two years, Fleck worked with new Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano for Rutgers. Tampa Bay recently hired Schiano as its new head coach, and Fleck apparently has decided to reunite there.

Before becoming a coach at Rutgers, Fleck was wide receivers coach for the Huskies from 2007 to 2009. He also played there as a wide receiver himself from 1999 to 2003. At this point, it's not totally clear how much Northern Illinois knew about Fleck's interest in joining the Buccaneers.
