'A Lot of Moving Parts' in Bucs Offense Under Liam Coen

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off a good 2023 season, which saw them win the division and a playoff game with Baker Mayfield at the helm—but that was with Dave Canales as offensive coordinator.

With Canales now the head coach in Carolina, Liam Coen is tasked with being the new voice in Mayfield's ear, and things have gotten off to a good start at OTAs.

Veteran receiver Chris Godwin has given his take on Coen's new scheme and labeled it "complex" but hinted that opposing defenses will be getting a lot thrown at them on gameday.

"There will be a lot of moving parts for defenses to have to try and figure out," Godwin said. "I think the way they are teaching it will allow us to have cohesiveness within the offense. We have a bunch of different terms and phrases that can get us into one formation or one play that looks like a different play. I think how it all marries up will be beneficial for us."

The Buccaneers' offense last season was solid enough, ranking 20th for points per game (20.5), but the biggest sore spot was the lack of a run game.

Tampa Bay was the worst team in the league for rush yards per game last season with just 88.8 per game.

There is hope that under Coen, that will pick up in 2024.

Coen has a good quarterback to pair his scheme with in Mayfield, who is coming off a superb season and that was without a solid run game. With receivers Mike Evans and Godwin, coupled with what they hope will be an improved run game, the Buccaneers' offense can throw several things at defense in Coen's complex scheme.

While the installation is still in its early phases, things appear to be going well as the Buccaneers look to claim a fourth consecutive division title, with Coen's "complex" scheme set to play a big role in Tampa's success in 2024.
