Schiano finally gets look at Bucs in full gear

A little more than six months after leaving Rutgers to take over

the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Greg Schiano is finally getting a

close-up view of his new team in pads.

The first-time NFL head coach liked what he saw Sunday, even if

the club’s first training camp workout in full gear wasn’t pretty

at times.

While Schiano and his players welcomed the first contact drills

in preparation for the upcoming season, the coach stressed that to

improve on last year’s 4-12 finish the Bucs have to curtail

penalties, missed assignments and turnovers, especially

fumbles.
