Lesie Frazier to be named Bucs new defensive coordinator

Frazier confirms hiring with ESPN

Tampa - The Buccaneers continue to move fast in their pursuit of a coaching staff.

One day after Jeff Tedford was reported to become the Bucs new offensive coordinator, tonight ABC Action News confirmed an earlier report by ESPN that Leslie Frazier will become the team's new defensive coordinator.

Frazier was fired as head coach of the Vikings after the season and was considered one of the top two candidates for the defensive coordinator's job along with Rod Marinelli.

It's believed the Dallas Cowboys would not give the Bucs the go-ahead to talk to Marinelli about hte job.

So, it's been a busy beginning to 2014 for the Bucs.

Head Coach Lovie Smith will be officially introduced to the media Monday afternoon at One Buc.
