Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running backs coach Art Valero is headed to St. Louis where he will be named as the Rams’ assistant head coach under Scott Linehan, with whom he coached at the University of Idaho and the University of Louisville in the 1990s.
On his way out the door, Valero delivered a few harsh words for Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden in a St. Petersburg Times report on Saturday. Valero spoke with PewterReport.com on Saturday and had even more to say about Gruden and the reason why he is anxious to leave and work for a coach he “can trust” in Linehan.
Valero was hired as the tight ends coach in 2002 as part of Gruden’s original staff in Tampa Bay. He was moved to running backs coach in 2004 after Kirby Wilson left and was promoted to the role of assistant head coach in 2006. Full Story – Pewter Reporthttp://www.pewterreport.com/articles/view/3834
