TAMPA - The Bucs recognized that the price of keeping a good defensive coordinator had gone up this offseason. More importantly, they were willing to pay that increased price.
Finishing what arguably was the top item on their offseason to-do list, the Bucs on Friday signed longtime defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin to a multi-year contract extension.
Exact terms were not available, but it is believed Kiffin agreed to a three-year extension that calls for his annual salary to increase from the $1.7 million he made last season to at least $2 million.
Kiffin became the fourth Bucs coach to re-up with the team, joining offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Bill Muir, receivers coach Richard Mann and special teams coordinator Richard Bisaccia. Full Story – Tribunehttp://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/jan/19/sp-kiffin-signs-extension/?sports-bucs
