Barry Named Assistant O-Line Coach

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released on Tuesday  that they have named Butch Barry assistant offensive line coach. Barry will work with Offensive Line Coach George Warhop.

Barry joins the Buccaneers from Central Michigan University, where he spent the past five seasons coaching the offensive line (2014) and tight ends (2010-13). In 2014, Barry’s unit paved the way for a 1,000-yard season by running back Thomas Rawls, a key cog in the Chippewas’ offense who rushed for 1,103 yards and 10 touchdowns in only nine games. As tight ends coach, Barry headed a group that combined for 63 receptions for 644 yards and six touchdowns over 2012-13, while helping Central Michigan record another 1,000-yard rusher in Zurlon Tipton, who finished with 1,492 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2012.

Barry began his coaching career with the Chippewas as a graduate assistant in 2002-03 prior to coaching stops at Southwest Minnesota State University (2004-05), Michigan Tech University (2006-08) and North Greenville University (2009).
