Former California coach Jeff Tedford has been hired as offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

New Bucs coach Lovie Smith made the announcement Saturday, saying Tedford has a ''successful and proven track record as a teacher and developer of young talent.''

Tedford led Cal from 2002-12. During his long coaching career, Tedford has worked with six quarterbacks eventually selected in the first round of the NFL draft, including Aaron Rodgers.

Other notable offensive players who played for him at Cal are running back Marshawn Lynch and wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Smith was hired as Bucs coach Thursday, replacing Greg Schiano. The Bucs finished last in the league in passing and total offense while going 4-12 this season.
