The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added Gill Byrd to their staff as cornerbacks coach on Friday.
Byrd worked under new Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith in Chicago as defensive quality control (2006), assistant defensive backs coach (2007) and safeties coach (2008-12). Before joining the Bears, Byrd served as a defensive assistant (2003-04) and as an assistant secondary coach (2006) with the St. Louis Rams.
As a player with the San Diego Chargers for 10 seasons, Byrd set a team record with 42 career interceptions. He retired in 1993.
